Road legality is often a confusing and needlessly complex term. At Direct Bikes, we find that most people can get quite confused by the term ‘road legal’. For example, what constitutes road legality?

At Direct Bikes, the only thing that we are focused on is the bikes that we sell. For example, we sell a wide range of 125cc scooters. Quick and powerful, they make a fine choice for most people who want to get out to the countryside and beyond. But what if you just want something a bit more homely and simplistic? Then we have a solution for you, too. For example, our 50cc road legal bikes for sale are the ideal place to begin for anyone looking to get into riding in a real way.

With a 50cc road legal bike, you can enjoy knowing that you have a vehicle that is 100% ready to be driven on the roads of the UK. You just need to decide which of our awesome models you would enjoy riding the most. So, why not take a look at our growing collection of scooters today?

With such a fin range, you’ll be sure to find something that is 100% suited to your intended experience.

What do I need to ride your 50cc road legal bikes for sale?

To ride a 50cc moped, you need to be at least the age of sixteen. We cannot sell you a moped without proof that you are the age of sixteen. You also then need to focus on getting the correct licensing, otherwise you cannot start riding at all.

To start off with, we recommend that you go and sit your Compulsory Basic Training, or your CBT. This is a crucial part of learning how to ride and should impart a wide range of different skills. Once you have got your CBT, you then need to think about getting a driving license to go with it. Your CBT would be suitable in conjunction with either a full driving license for a car, or a provisional riding license.

If you already have your provisional, though, you don’t need to apply for a second one. To apply for your provisional, you can do it either online through the DVLA, or you can do it locally through your local post office. It’s entirely up to you, but you need to have both your CBT and your provisional at least.

What makes a 50cc road legal?

So, what makes our 50cc road legal bikes for sale ‘road legal’ in the first place?

The main thing that makes them road legal is the engine size. If you were to buy a 50cc moped, then you would be buying (alongside our 49cc range) the smallest road legal engine in the UK. You are not permitted to drive on the roads with anything under the 49/50cc range. Outside of this, you would simply not have the speed and the pace to be able to safely drive with other cars and bikes.

If you buy a 50cc road legal scooter from us, then, it will arrive in pristine and prime condition. You can then start riding it as soon as you get it road taxed and insured. We can help you to find quality insurance, while road tax can be handled either via the DVLA or through your local post office again. Online is typically much faster, and with tax for a 50cc scooter from Direct Bikes just £19 for the full year, they are some of the most affordable vehicles in the UK for you to get road tax for!

What speed can my road legal 50cc do?

If you buy a 50cc scooter from Direct Bikes, you can expect to be hitting a top speed of around 30 miles per hour. That’s a good speed for most drives, though it’s not suitable for motorway riding. Please keep that in mind, as many riders have tried to go on the motorway with a 50cc. It’s not permitted, regardless of what license you might hold at this moment in time.

If you can keep that in mind, then you can avoid making a mistake and riding dangerously. With a 50cc, your best bet is to keep to places like towns and cities, or smaller roads. You have to be able to make it clear that with a top speed of 30mph you cannot simply just accelerate away from danger. That’s why we recommend that if you do want a road legal 50cc moped then you make sure it’s suitable for you.

Make sure you are someone who is going to be riding in the kind of locations where a 50cc should be. If you need to cross motorways day-in, day-out, then you might find that our 50cc range is simply not fast enough for you.

What do your 50cc road legal bikes for sale cost?

At the time of writing, our cheapest road legal 50cc scooter is just £899. Our typical price range for our 50cc models, though, is around £999. This makes it a fine choice for just about anyone who is looking for a highly reliable, enjoyable road legal bike to drive around in. It’s a good choice for anyone who is looking for something consistent, and affordable.

However, it’s also important for us to know that our 50cc road legal bikes are not just affordable to buy, but also to run. They are very cheap to get running on the roads of the UK, as they have a mileage of 100mpg and above. This means that even in the tight cities of the UK, you could still find that you spend a lot less on petrol than you ever would with a car.

That’s why we recommend that if you want to start enjoying riding that you invest in the right kind of bike. With one of our 50c road legal bikes, this is going to become much easier to go through with in general. Need a hand choosing?
