Planning a visit to the United States? Want to ride your motorcycle during your visit? Let Fernet Insurance Brokers arrange for your temporary insurance needs before you even leave home! We offer a program designed to cover yourself and your cycle while you are visiting. Its the Safe Trip Motorcycle Insurance Program from Dairyland, one of the largest motorcycle insurance companies in America, rated A+ by A.M. Best.
And, the program even offers roadside assistance. Additional Information: Insuring visitors' motorcycles touring the USA and Canada is fairly straight forward, especially when the on-line form has been fully completed, and the authorized credit card is processed without difficulty. Please ensure that there is no hold on the credit card for charges by third parties from overseas.
Some visitors travel with the intention to purchase their motorcycle in the USA. Of course, we can only begin the insurance process after the motorcycle has been bought and a valid VIN [Vehicle Identification Number] is available in order to complete the insurance application. A temporary registration must then be obtained from the Department of Motor Vehicles [DMV] showing proof of insurance. There should be no problem if the motorcycle is purchased from a dealership as they handle the registration and provide you with the necessary temporary tag. However, it can be much more complicated if the motorcycle is purchased from a private owner. The difficulties vary from state-to-state and from DMV office-to-DMV office, depending on the clerk that you are dealing with."
