Default Buying a 50cc Scooter

Hi everyone
Looking to pick on your brains again 😊!

Do I need a notary to buy a 50cc scooter in Spain.

And also do I need a drivers licence and insurance to use it on a public road?

TIA

You do not need a notary and if you buy through a dealer they will normally do the registration for you.

When I bought my 125cc moto I put a deposit on it one afternoon then returned the next day with my insurance and to pay the balance and I rode away on it with the transfer all done. The new permis was mailed to me in due course.

Yes to both..

Different to the Uk where you can ride a moped on a provisional (still need insurance) as there is no provisional here.

This is from a website (but from 2020)

Class AM

The class AM authorises holders to drive two or three-wheeled mopeds and lightweight quadricycles with a maximum speed of 45 km/hour on public roads. The minimum age to obtain this license class is 15. The tests required include a psycho-physical aptitude test, a written theory test and a closed-circuit practical exam.

You either need a class B driving licence (carnet de conducir) or a scooter licence (permiso AM). So if you've already got a driving licence you're okay, except for insurance.

You certainly do NOT need a notary to register one. To buy one you just need money!

One thing to be careful of which I found out when enquiring re insurance for a motorbike. I was told to avoid a 50cc as they have high insurance costs due to mainly being ridden by youngsters. Advice was that its cheaper to insure a 125 scooter than 50cc? Not a size i was looking into but something to consider.

You do it all via a Gestor or, if doing it yourself, directly with DGT and the tax office.
