Moped Rider Course
This one 5-hour classroom session is required for those at least 15 years of age and wish to ride a moped on the street. Anyone with a drivers license may legally ride a moped although we suggest you take the course to brush up on essential two-wheel skills required to safely operate one of these machines. Those without a driver’s license who wish to ride a moped are required to complete the course. 1 session.
