I don't know why but people still ask if you need a drivers license to operate a scooter including 49cc scooters in the state of Colorado.
The answer is most definitely - YES. Has been for the past 30 years. If it's a motorized vehicle that wants to operate on a public Colorado roadway - you need a drivers license - period! If you have a scooter that is above 50cc, you'll need a motorcycle endorsement on that drivers license.
All scooters in Colorado now require liability insurance. That law came into effect a few years ago.
