No, a 14-year-old cannot legally drive a motorcycle or scooter in South Africa. The minimum age requirement to ride a motorcycle or scooter on public roads is 16 years old, and this is only for scooters with an engine capacity of 125cc or lower.

To legally operate a motorcycle or scooter with an engine capacity above 125cc in South Africa, you need to have a Code A1 or Code A motorcycle license. The minimum age requirement for these licenses is 17 years old.

It’s important to note that these age requirements are based on the standard regulations, and there might be additional restrictions or conditions depending on the specific circumstances or endorsements on your license.
