Hi,

Yes you can operate them on the street as long as you are 16 and hold a class E License. You do not need the Motorcycle endorsement for this 50cc Scooter. Please read about the law here: http://moped2.org/txt/florida_moped_laws.htm Joan

Thank you-I have one more question-do I need to register it and get a license plate to drive on the street?

Hello,

They do require a tag (a moped tag) to be street legal. It is not as much as a regular motorcycle tag cost wise, but it is required. Hope this helps. Joan
