In South Africa, the regulations regarding riding a scooter on a car license are as follows:

If you have a Code B driver’s license in South Africa, which is the standard passenger vehicle license, you are allowed to ride a scooter or motorcycle with an engine capacity of 125cc or lower. This means you can legally operate a scooter with a 150cc engine on a car license.

However, it is important to note that certain conditions apply. These include:

  1. The scooter must have an engine capacity of 125cc or less.
  2. You are not allowed to carry a passenger on the scooter.
  3. You must display an “L” (learner) plate on the rear of the scooter if you are a learner or novice driver.
  4. You must comply with all other traffic rules and regulations applicable to motorcycles and scooters.

It’s always a good idea to consult the South African traffic authorities or refer to the official traffic regulations for the more information regarding the specific requirements for riding a scooter on a car license in South Africa.
