Out of interest what sort of licence do you have to have to hire a bike like that? Rode them all the time in my younger days but never passed the test. Do you need a full bike licence?

In the UK if you would need to have passed a CBT if you do not have a full UK bike licence for the 125 if you wanted to ride a 50cc scooter then you would be fine with just a full UK drivers licence. Not sure what the rules are for Greece though...  :)

Just to add to this does anybody know what the law is for riding a motorbike in Greece? Do you need a seperate licence? Are there restrictions on the size of bike you can ride as per your licence?

i hired a 250cc kawasaki trailie bike when i was out in crete, but i have a full uk motorcycle and car licence so it has never occured to me to ask what the law states, i can never remember seeing any " L " plates on any type of vehicle out there either so i am not sure whether they have a "provisional "  licence covering motorcycles up to a certain capacity or even whether they have the equivalent to out " cbt "

hope this helps lol

This would suggest you need a proper separate licence...

That's interesting as I have a seperate part for my CBT but have never taken it with me... the guy even trys to encourage me to rent a bigger bike even though I have explained to him that my license only covers me up to 125 but this is Zakynthos and since when have the locals worried about new government enforcements of laws lol...   ;)
