Yes. They get ruder and more road hogging every day. If I have to drive ten miles an hour for 10 miles because they are riding in the road and there is no room to pass, they should have to pay their share.

Cars with low emissions pay zero tax. So how are you going to work that cyclists, with even lower emissions, should pay more than cars?
Insurance - that makes sense

Yes, but it would be much less than an automobile driver pays.
Road tax pays for maintenance of the roads. Insurance covers damage done by the vehicle to other people or property. Bicycles put a lot less wear on the roads and cause a lot less damage in collisions compared to a car.
(There's also an argument for temporarily exempting bicycles from the tax in order to incentivise cycling.)

They already are supposed to have health insurance. Requiring liability insurance would prevent children from enjoying riding their bikes.
And why would anyone want or need full coverage on a bike that costs less than 1000 dollars? Most bikes are cheaper than automobiles to repair or replace.
