According to the estimates of the Hungarian Association of Independent Insurance Brokers (FBAMSZ), only 15-20% of the approximately 600,000 scooters operating in Hungary regularly pay the compulsory motor third party liability insurance premium (KGFB), writes profitline.hu.

The organization highlighted in a statement this week that some owners may not even be aware that the insurance obligation applies not only to vehicles with license plates, but to all mopeds on 

Scooter owners who have failed to pay premiums so far do not have to fear retaliation due to their previous failure to take out insurance, because unlike motor vehicles, they do not have an indemnity premium that they would have to pay retroactively, Zsolt Cselovszki, member of FBAMSZ's board, pointed out in the statement.
