To the learned.
We are going to buy a new scooter for service and Ben said that the TPG only cover 50%, is this correct or can someone enlighten us?

Cheers, Steve.

Steve, I'd check with your bank and see what they have to offer for Comprehensive insurance, the bank I use is PNB and they offer a variety of insurance so I'll bet the other banks do the same.

I have heard that the insurance does pay well and most of the damages, I'll PM you something.

I'm not sure of the terms used here but I think it is part of the registration process according to Ben. In Oz with our rego we have mandatory "compulsory third party insurance" . This does not cover vehicles but people, hospital, ambulances etc.

Could this "TPG" be the same thing and if so is it correct that it only covers 50% of costs?

Thank you Lefties for pointing out the issue with the TAX TITLE, we will look into that as well.

Mark, we will check with the bank as well as asking the neighbours about comprehensive insurance.

Cheers, Steve.

For a motorcycle/scooter there is no required liability insurance like for a car. If it were me I would not worry about buying insurance as the damage you could cause on it should be minimal to non-existent.
