Q&A - Operating an LSM with Class 7L
I just bought a 50 cc scooter and was really hoping you could help me with two questions. It is a 2003 Yamaha BWS. First, can I drive it with my Learners license? I am turning 16 in a week, and know many people who ride them around with they're L, or so they say, but I can't find any for sure legislation. Second, can I take two people with my L?
A Class 7L driver's licence does permit the operation of an LSM, but the MVAR requires that the supervisor sit either beside or behind and to the right of the class 7L driver.
The class 8L does have an exemption:
It appears that unless your LSM has a sidecar, you are out of luck and cannot ride one with a Class 7L licence.
