"yea i can drive my moped with a learners permit but a licenced adult has to be bitch on the back..."
That's what I thought, pretty much. You have a conditional license, essentially, with the condition that a licensed driver has to be in your vehicle when you drive it. That your vehicle probably can't carry a whole extra licensed driver doesn't figure into the law.
I wouldn't suggest it but you could still ride, and if you ever got pulled over, just say "Yeah, I've only got a permit, but my dad's riding right behi... HOLY CRAP, He must have fallen off!"
The cops might think that was funny enough to give you a ride home after they impound your vehicle.
Still check the online DMV - the people who work there really don't know everything like they try to pretend they do - the vehicle code is enormous.
