Launched in December 2022, VMCC Motorcycle Insurance replaces what was called VMCC Club Cover. It includes a whole host of new features, making it one of the most comprehensive packages of vintage and classic bike insurance on the market. A key benefit is that at the start of the policy you can set an “Agreed Value” for your bike: if the worst happens this guarantees the payment that you will receive rather than an insurance company estimate of its market value made after the event.

Designed exclusively for the Club, VMCC Motorcycle Insurance gives members access to a range of benefits that are simply not available elsewhere. If you’re an existing PJI customer through the old VMCC Club Cover, at renewal you will automatically be switched over to VMCC Motorcycle Insurance with all the new benefits.

Why choose VMCC Motorcycle Insurance?

Policy benefits can include:*
  • Additional discount based on length of membership
  • Agreed Value
  • Any numbers of bikes can be put on the same policy
  • Cover for machines in storage or being transported on a laid-up basis can be insured (these can be covered on the frame number if not DVLA registered

  • Young owners of a classic bike
  • Young enthusiasts as an additional rider
