Scooters or mopeds

You don't need an endorsement to operate a moped. A moped has pedals and less than 50cc, and a top speed of under 35mph.
Scooters are larger and require a motorcycle endorsement. They have higher top speeds, but interestingly, smaller wheels. Also, no pedals.
Scooters and mopeds have no real "ropes" to show--they are small engines and automatic transmissions (or just one speed). Mopeds usually have two-stroke engines, which means you have to mix two-stroke oil into the fuel you feed it. But on the bright side, there's no oil to change out of the engine--really there's like no maintenance required

Live Wire: No license plates required for mopeds  — Fayetteville Observer
Note: This definition applies to many machines that are described by their manufacturers as scooters or mopeds. Whether the machine is a moped or a motorcycle, its operator must obey all traffic laws.

    I have a sym dd50 moped 2003. it dosent have a spark plug thus it wont start i want to know if the reason for it not starting is the spark plug? it does not turn on at all.. i put the key in and turn it yet nothing happens. no light or anything is it the spark plug or could it be something else?

    also where is the battery located in my sym dd50 moped?

    • Yes you need the spark plug to start the moped. (it ignites the gas to make the moped run)

      Battery is probably under seat.

      The no lights are probably either no battery or it's not connected.

      Lights should work without battery.
