I've hear you can, then I've heard you can't. Does anyone know for real? I want to buy one but have a DUI (from my medication) so just trying to find out.

If you can get a DUI on a bike, a horse, or roller blades I'd definitely say you can't ride a scooter without a license. Anything that is driven on the road I'm sure you have to have.a license for. Now if you just want to do laps around your house I'm sure that's fine hahaha. I got a DUI several years ago and left a bottle of Benadryl in the passenger seat still in its box just in case I got pulled over I was planning on saying it was an emergency... I saw it on tv LOL( not really sure if it would work)

WRONG! Trust me you have to have a license to operate it on the roadway. I know this bc my sister got stopped, and didn't have a license. Shr got a ticket, and when she went to court the judge told her the same thing. The place that sold it at the time told her otherwise, and they were WRONG, but she got a license soon after and it wasn't a problem.

Actually not too long ago we had a man on a scooter run thru our yard and smash up our mailbox and fence...then he drove off. We called the cops and they said they couldn't do too much, just give him a ticket for leaving the scene. They told us not only do you not have to have a license but you don't need to carry insurance when driving a scooter either. Needless to say, fixing our mailbox and fence came out of our own pocket.

Scooters less than 50 cc do not have to be registered or licensed and the individual operating these less than 50 cc motor scooters does not have to possess a drivers license in the state of Kentucky but they can not be operated on any roadway where the speed limit is over 30 mph.

Correction.... The law does state you do not need a license if operated on private property only. If operated on any public road then the operator does have to have a valid moped license. However the less than 50 cc moped is not allowed on any roadway that the speed limit is above 30 mph. Sorry lil putt putt :(

Wrong, they don't have to be licensed (ie have a license plate) but the driver had to either have a valid license or a moped license (for people less than 16 that can't get a regular license) anything bigger than a 50cc is considered a motorcycle, has to be registered, and you have to have a motorcycle license

Yes, you don't need to register or insure a 49 cc moped, but if you drive it on the roadway you have to have a license. PERIOD .

No. Some of these morons are dreaming. You can get a DUI crossing the street on your riding mower.

While you're calling people idiots and not using proper punctuation or capitalization, you should also point out there is a difference between a moped and a scooter. The topic is asking about a 49cc scooter, not a moped. The more you know.:)
