When you’re on island time, nothing beats riding around on a scooter, taking in the sites and enjoying the warm breeze on your face. If you’re planning your next trip to Miami Beach or you’re a local looking for a little fun in the sun, renting a scooter is a great first step for a memorable day. Scooters are affordable, get good gas mileage, are easy to drive and park, and allow you to take in the inspiring sights, sounds and smells of SOBE in style.

License Requirements

What if you’ve never driven a scooter before? You may be wondering if you’re you even qualified to get behind the wheel of that pink Vespa and hit Collins Avenue. It all depends on the type of scooter you’re driving. Many scooter rental companies offer a wide range of scooters from 49cc engines to upwards of 150cc.
Vehicles with engines 50cc and below typically won’t reach speeds higher than 30 miles per hour and therefore can be driven without any special training or licensing. You can simply hop on one of these scooters with nothing more than astandard non-commercial driver’s license.

If you want something a little faster, you’re going to need avalid motorcycle license.
Of course, having a valid driver’s license also means that you should be at least 16 years of age to drive a scooter with a 50cc engine or below (21 years of age for faster scooters). But that’s the end of it. You don’t need special insurance, nor do you need to go through any training program to drive a scooter.
