A fully comprehensive insurance for the moped car? Not to get!

Why is it so difficult to get fully comprehensive insurance for a moped car? Strictly speaking, the 45 km/h runabouts call themselves yes Light vehicles!

And apart from a field trial started some time ago by a seller of light vehicles and an insurance company, so far too nothing yet result in something new!

There are occasionally a few insurance companies that offer fully comprehensive insurance for the moped car in the price range of €500 to around €600, but the driver of these insurance companies must not be under 23 years old. If the requirements are met, the vehicle will receive fully comprehensive insurance in combination with the typical small moped insurance number plate and you don't have to go to the registration office, the vehicle remains TÜV and tax-free and voluntary registration is also not necessary. However, the voluntary admission of older drivers with percentage points can make the policy a little cheaper. Here you should weigh the advantages and disadvantages carefully.
