I like to keep the numbers of questions on our current Scooter Answers category pages down to a usable minimum. Too many questions to scan through can be overwhelming. So I've created these archive pages so that you can still find answers to almost any scooter question through search, but the most current (last month's) questions will be easier to scan through and answer or just learn from.

So, this archived scooter questions page is about scooter licensing and laws. If you can't find what you want here, feel free to use our site search box:

Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
