Well, it’s been about two weeks since I got the licence for the Vespa, and I must say it’s great! No traffic, no parking problems, no stress. I definitely recommend it to everyone.
Some info on the licence, for Portugal:
- If you have a driving licence, category B, issued before March 30th of 1998, you can drive a <50cc scooter. Anything after that, you’ll need to get a new one.
- To get a new one, if you do have a driving licence, category B, you’ll just need to do a practical exam. If not, theory and practical exam.
- After applying for the exam, you’ll have to wait around five weeks to get a set date.
