Do you drive a car? If you do, you will know just how expensive it can be to drive. The cost of cars today, thanks to high road tax, makes it hard to drive economically. The cost of petrol, too, means that you are often spending more than you want. Given most of us need our car(s) to get to and from work, though, it’s a hard problem to solve. At Direct Bikes, though, we have the ideal solution for you.

Do you want to still drive, yet without the same kind of costs and associated fees?

Do you want to start spending less on the vehicle as well vehicle upkeep?

So long as you only travel in a part of 1 or 2, you could get one of our road legal scooters. At Direct Bikes, we sell a whole host of high-end scooters suited to just about any kind of rider. From those on a weekend getaway to those looking for a cost-effective car alternative, we hear you. We know that it can be tough to find the best scooter, but with Direct Bikes it’s really easy.

So is buying from our store, which we’ll discuss in a minute.

What are road legal scooters?

Today, a road legal scooter is anything 49cc and above. If you buy a scooter under 49cc in engine power, though, it likely will not be road legal. At Direct Bikes, all of our 50cc mopeds for sale and 125cc scooters for sale are going to be legal to ride on the road. You just need to make sure that you get the right driving license to ensure you can be allowed on the road.

We’ll show you what you need in terms of licensing in a moment. For now, though, you can look through all of our 50cc and 125cc mopeds knowing they are road safe. So long as you have the correct credentials, you could start driving any of our mopeds on sale today. This is just what you need if you want to make buying a scooter simple. So, which model do you see yourself driving from our site?

What aren’t road legal scooters?

The only kind of scooter that well at Direct Bikes which cannot be road driven are our electric scooters. Even then, we have our popular Go Electric Scooter. This is totally road-ready and could be driven without issue. Given it’s powered by electricity, too, you don’t even have to get it road taxed!

If you are looking at our scooter collection, though, just remember that our smaller electric scooters are not road legal. Every other model which is sold on our website, though, are 100% road legal. If you intend on buying a scooter in the near future, then you should keep that in mind. It might just help you to choose a scooter that you know is capable of driving on the roads.

What do I need to ride a scooter?

To ride a scooter from Direct Bikes, you need to get a certain kind of licensing. We recommend that you start off first by getting your Compulsory Basic Training. With your CBT, you can easily show that you have the mettle and the skills to handle riding a motorbike. That is going to go a long way to making sure you can start moving up to getting other licenses in the near future.

For every license, you will need to have your CBT. The only exemption to this is if you were able to pass your full car driving licence prior to the 1st February 2001. If you did that, you could drive one of our 50cc scooter rides without having to take your CBT. To progress up to 125cc, though, you would need to go and sit your CBT.

Getting the right license

Another confusing factor for some people with regards to road legal scooters is licensing. To ride a scooter, you need at the very least your CBT plus your provisional. You can get your provisional driving license as soon as you turn 16, and it can be done through your local post office. Simply ask for the forms that you need, and you can fill it all in and get it sent away.

Your license should turn up within a few days to a couple of weeks depending on demand. However, please note that if you do only have your CBT and your provisional, you are limited. You cannot, for example:

  • Ride your scooter at a speed higher than 28mph/30mph, regardless of its top speed.
  • Ride your scooter with another passenger (pillion passenger) on the back.
  • Take off your L plates; these must stay on until you get a full license.
  • Drive on the motorway; this is forbidden for 50cc scooters.

Once you reach the age of 17, you could go for your full A1 license. This would allow you to drive a 125cc at maximum speed, with a passenger, and without L plates. You could also ride on the motorway!

Finding the best scooters at Direct Bikes

We know that you might be unsure about some factors around buying a bike. For example, what kind of license is considered ‘full’?

  • If you wish to ride a 50cc scooter at maximum, you need at least your AM license. You can obtain your AM license at age 16+ by passing a practical and theory exam.
  • If you wish to ride a 125cc scooter in full, you need your A1 license. This can be obtained from age 17+ and needs you to pass a practical and a theory test.

If you do either of the above, you could drive your Direct Bikes scooter without any limits whatsoever. However, we recommend that you get your CBT and your provisional first and foremost. This should go a long way to making sure you can learn how to ride one of our various road ready scooters. So long as you have your CBT and provisional, and are aged 16+, you could begin riding today.
