Using a bicycle, motorbike or electric bike is a more cost effective way to get around than cars. Itâ€™s true. Book Theory Test Today examines how choosing two wheels over four can save you cash.
Book Theory Test Today Overview
Word on the street is that more motorists are ditching gas-guzzling cars in favour of two-wheeled transportation, whether thatâ€™s pedal power, petrol or electricity.
New research shows that over three million people regularly ride a bicycle, a third of whom use them to commute to work. A further one million have a motorcycle theory test certificate and licence.
I, personally, am not a fan of the two-wheeled mode of transportation, preferring the comfort and luxury of the four-wheeled vehicle. However, I do agree that choosing two wheels could prove to be more exhilarating and much cheaper.
The great news for you learner drivers is that you only need to pass a theory test and riding exam for one of them. Â
Book Theory Test Today on Electric Bikes
Yes, a brand new electric bike can set you back over Â£1,000. I can get a second hand car for that you exclaim. True, you can. However, when you consider the cost of a provisional licence, driving lessons, a theory test, a practical exam, buying your second hand car, taxing it, then insuring it, fuelling it and maintaining it, suddenly having a car isnâ€™t so cheap.
Theyâ€™re cheap to charge and, on average, the majority of electric bikes can hold enough electricity to take you 40 miles or more.
However, there are just 20,000 electric bikes â€“ known as e-bikes â€“ in use in the UK. Itâ€™s abroad where the trend is catching on. Countries like China have over 200 million powered bike users.
To ride an electric bike you donâ€™t need a theory test certificate or a licence. Youâ€™re not required to tax it and insurance is optional. The cost-saving potential is massive compared to buying a car.
Book Theory Test Today on Pedal BikesÂ Â
Should you commute to work using a bicycle you can get 25 percent off the price of a brand new one all thanks to tax breaks.
Over a decade ago the Cycle to Work scheme, or Cyclescheme, was introduced to get people back on push-bikes. The scheme helps you to avoid paying income tax and national insurance contributions on the purchase of a bike.
The average price of a new bike is now Â£233 and with no theory test certificate, licence or lessons to pay for, getting around on a push-bike will save you plenty of money. Plus, itâ€™s healthy.
Book Theory Test Today on MotorbikesÂ Â Â
To ride a motorcycle you do need a theory test certificate and a licence, plus youâ€™ll need to invest in all of the required safety equipment. While more expensive than electric and pedal bikes, compared to driving a car, costs are still considerably lower.
