minimum age for moped rental?

Would a 14 year old be able to ride own moped if adult rents it? Thanks!

No. You must have a driver's license.

Those things are death traps. Not because the vehicles are shoddy, bit because the people on them have NO IDEA how to drive them.

Just this week I saw some bozo get onto his moped and plow right into the rental kiosk as he confused the accelerator for the brake. Weldon's Way is a comedy of stop-start-whoops. It boggles my mind that a motorcycle license isn't required.

Well, that's news to me, but then, I don't think we rented back when we camped as Boy Scouts! Can't blame residents being down on these, but good they're still available for rent. Just one more thing to have fun with here. Sure would love to have a weekend aboard a clipper out here!
