Vespas?

Hey all!

I'm considering buying a Vespa. I've done some googling and got some contradictory info regarding licensing, parking etc, so thought I'd ask here.



- I'm 30 years old, had my car licence for 13 years, do I have to do some kind of test to drive one?


- Do you need any kind of permit to park a Vespa on the street/outside your building here? I see them all over the place, and yet had no luck when I googled.



Thanks!

Depends on the engine size.

Re: Vespas?

If you want a Vespa that goes faster than 50 km/h, you need to proceed as if you wanted to get a 125 cc motorbike.

Which with a car license means 2x4h course, no test.

More than 125cc needs a test on a 35+kW bike, and 3x4h course.
