In the U.S., most places require a motorcycle license for a 125cc scooter. I know of one city/county in particular that allows 125cc to pass as moped. You’ll want to check with your local laws because they may not even be the same throughout all of Canada. Whatever the law, even if you have to get a motorcycle license, it’s not really a big deal. In the U.S. the written test is very easy and the riding test is as simple as weaving in and out of a few cones and turning around. The twist-n-go throttle on the scooter makes this especially easy.
