What a bloody minefield!I am thinking about getting our lass either a 49cc scooter or an electric moped for her birthday and I've been Googling for info on the licence requirements, only to discover that there are lots of mixed opinions and contradictions.
She gained her car licence in 1994 (late starter!) so what is the situation with regards to:
Does she have to do a CBT?
Does she need to have L plates?
Any opinions on thos 'leccy scooters would be good too. I know she could get an EAPC with pedals that'll do 15mph and not have to have a helmet or any licence but it's a bit too much like a push bike!

I just read on dmv.org that you do not need ANY license if the moped you have does not go more than 20 mph. Do they make non kiddish mopeds like this that go at 15-20 an hour? I have tried finding these online and have had little luck.

Erratic riders, the mopeds are generally steady riders, but the scooters have all types riding and they can be very scary with a lot of not so skilled riding, they take off too fast off the line and are always racing and generally a bit of a nuisance on the road, I now have a loud honda cb700 with very loud almost straight pipes with a tiny yoshimura can with no baffles, I like scaring the hell out of them when I open it up as I pass them after letting them think they came off the line fast enough, I have noticed that now that I have loud pipes I never use my horn anymore, on my yamaha seca I
