When people first see our two-wheeled rentals, they commonly refer to both type of vehicles as “scooters.” One being just a little larger than the other. However, they are entirely different. Mopeds are 49cc vehicles and one only person is allowed on the moped. You only need a valid drivers license and be at least 18 years old to operate. So the thing you see everyone zipping around on is most likely a moped, not a scooter. A scooter is entirely different, they are classified as a motorcycle and you may seat two people. A motorcycle license is required and you must be at least 21 years old to rent a scooter.
