At Direct Bikes, we help many parents get their children their first vehicle. From the moment your child hits legal driving age, they’ll likely be asking when they can get started. If the expense of going for a car and lessons is putting you off, though, take a look at our brilliant moped collection. For many parents, our mopeds make the perfect place to help their children get into the art of riding.

When you want to help your child progress in life, things can become quite confusing once they hit age 16. At this age, your little child is on the verge of developing into an adult. At 16, you can see their mind moving towards more independent thinking and the idea of doing things their own way. And as they age, you want to help them become the adults that they are destined to be. But how do you do this in an effective manner? It’s easy: you show them how to ride!

For the most part, you cannot learn how to drive a car until you are older than 16 anyway. For those who want to give their 16-year-old something really special this year, get them their Compulsory Basic Training (CBT).

With CBT examination success and the pick-up of their provisional bike riding license, you could start riding a 50cc motorbike today. Are 50cc motorbikes road legal, though? Let’s take a look at this often confusing legal landscape below.

What is a 50cc motorbike exactly?

Alright, so the use of the term motorbike is doing some work here. For the most part, something does not become a ‘motorbike’ in the truest sense until it is running an engine of around 125cc. At 50cc, you are still in what is known as ‘moped’ territory. This can be confusing, we know, but it’s something you need to think about. If you are ever uncertain about the classification of a Direct Bikes product, then you need only contact us to ask us for more information.

50cc motorbikes are normally classified by the fact they are capped at speeds of around 28-40mph. It just depends on what you buy, but most will be limited to 30mph. All of our 50cc models come with a top speed of 30mph/

This is a big reason why so many people choose to start driving something like this at such a young age. Given the time to learn what you are doing, they are brilliant introductions to going on the road for a youngster. If you want to be able to help your child learn how to ride without putting them on a vehicle that might be out of their depth, start with a 50c motorbike!

How does a 50cc motorbike drive?

We get it; you are worried about your kid going too fast and putting themselves (or others) at risk. With one of our bikes, though, you have absolutely nothing whatsoever to worry about!

Build to the highest manufacturing standard in China, every motorbike that we sell arrives in perfect riding condition. Brand new, too, all of our 50cc motorbikes road legal make the ideal starting point for a young driver. You could even enjoy riding on it yourself, if you get the license!

You will be happy to know, then, that just about every 50c motorbike is going to be powered using Continuously Variable Transmission, or CVT. CVT is also known as Twist & Go to most, and means you have little reason to worry about gear changing and the like.

For a young driver, taking away as many distractions as you can is vital to helping them learn the basics of being a driver. By using the above idea, you can easily help your child to start driving safer and without any worries about gears. That, then, is the main thing to think about: how can you buy a safe, road legal vehicle.

What, though, makes a 50cc engine motorbike road legal for someone at the age of 16?

What does my child need to ride a 50cc motorbike?

  • The first thing they need to do is reach age sixteen. Yes, you cannot accelerate that process – start building them up for the ability to drive from about age 14/15. Get them excited about the future possibility of being a driver!
  • They also need to go and get their Compulsory Basic Training (CBT). This is easy to get and should give them the opportunity to get out on the roads with their new bike.
  • However, they cannot take a passenger nor can they go on a motorway. They also must keep their L plates on. Once they reach 17, they can take their practical and theory tests to remove the L plates.
  • You will also have to get the vehicle taxed and insured. This is something you can do with your vendor, or on your own.

Once you do all of this, you are in a position whereby your child can start driving a motorbike that you have rented or bought for them. With that cleared up, let’s look at another important factor: price. Get this dealt with, and you can easily pick up a quality scooter from Direct Bikes for your teenager!

How much should 50cc motorbikes road legal and ready to drive cost me?

So, you want to help your kid get on the road? Awesome! To do that, you need to get them a bike. First off, we’d recommend helping them pass their CBT and get their provisional license. Once they are in possession of that, you could go ahead and buy one of our motorbikes. We have a lot of variety to pick from, so it should be very easy indeed to pick out a model that you know your children will love riding.

Typically, you can buy your 50cc motorbike from our store with prices starting at just £959.

However, keep in mind that you also have some extras you need to pay. For example, keep in mind that you would have to then go and get some kind of scooter insurance. You would also have to get it fully road taxed.

However, you’ll be happy to know that both road tax and insurance are quite cheap for 50ccs. This is because of their efficiency and their reliability. All of our models offer the best chance to get affordable road tax and suitable insurance for drivers of any experience.
