Virginia Motorcycle Insurance

General Motorcycle Insurance and ATV/Off-Road Vehicle Insurance Coverage Options for Virginia

Rider insures a wide range of motorcycles and ATV/Off-Road vehicles with insurance coverage options to satisfy the needs of our customers in Virginia. All of our policies insure individuals for recreational use only.

All of our Standard insurance policies include:

All policies, including moped policies, include uninsured/ underinsured motorist coverage. The limits are set at the liability limits that you choose for your policy, unless you choose lower limits. Uninsured Motorist coverage allows you to obtain payment for damages to your vehicle or injuries caused by an uninsured motorist who is at fault for an accident. Underinsured coverage allows you to obtain payment for injuries caused by an underinsured motorist who is at fault.

Each policy protects you if another person, including your passenger, makes a claim that they suffered bodily injury or property damage from an accident that was your fault. You have no obligation to the injured party unless the damages exceed your policy limit.

Insurance Coverage Packages & Options
