If I wanted to rent a scooter/Moped for a few hours or maybe even a few days, How difficult is it to do.
Is there a minimum age requirement? (I know im old enough) lol. What about if i need a credit card? What kind of I.d. do they ask for? Do you think that I can rent one without a proper license?
Thankx for the help.


P.S. how much do they normally/average in price?

Well, where you would be renting would be helpful...

Rented one in Bermuda as a part of our cruise. You did have to be 18 to do it, and take a 10 minute "class" on rules of the road, etc, but otherwise... that's all i got... Price was built into the cruise cost...

Sure, just make your own licence. Write your name and address on a piece of paper, the back of a postcard would do. Then draw a little picture of yourself, use colours it's just nicer like that. All you need then is to write (in your best offical looking handwriting style) "I can drive, I can" in black crayon at the bottom. This is acceptable all over Europe.

Well, just remember, riding a moped is a lot like making love to a fat chick.

Sure, its fun, but don't let your friends find out!

(could not possibly, ever, in a million years resist posting that joke!)


:D

Most authorities dont understand our graduated licencing system. Go buy another one for $100 and then you have another valid one for 5 years and you can opperate any engine under 50cc in most countries.


I have gotten my G licence and it is valid as a world licence. Thats right AUTOBAHN (sp?) Here I come.
