    It is a common question when applying for Motor insurance in the UK, as to whether the proposer (your mother, in this case) holds an appropriate UK licence, for the vehicle in question. When the answer is no, it is generally down the pan from there.

    It must be possible to get insurance, judging the number of people who arrive in the UK with foreign registered bikes, often from well outside of the EU. Don’t give up, you have hardly started.

    Have a look at this thread. The circumstances are not the same but you might want to give the fellows a call:

    I don't know if this is possible because she does not have a motorbike license.
    No, I'm pretty sure that even if she did have a bike licence, that would be considered as "fronting" by any potential insurers, as your mother wouldn't be the primary user of the vehicle.
