I have never driven a car and was never taught how (parents refused to teach me). Poverty made it exceptionally difficult even for my parents to afford gas for their vehicle, so it has always been out of reach. So, given that I have no experience with cars, I was told to look into mopeds and scooters. The problem is, I have no idea what I need to obtain to legally own one and drive it, where I can even go to learn how to drive (them), which moped/scooter is best for my state and my budget (about $2000-2500) and if I can even use them to cross highways (where my work is).
Does anyone have any idea where I can start? As winter comes along, it is going to be very difficult to walk to my work, let alone impossible to use my bike.
Thank you for reading,
