To be pedantic, SVG, in SA you can ride any 2- or 3- wheeled motor vehicle of less than 50cc and not capable of more than 50kph on any licence. In other words, it doesn't have to be a scooter, and it doesn't have to be a car licence.

Anyway, those who doubt scooters can be adventure bikes should check out Gary Farqhuar's ride from Korea to Italy via Siberia on his Suzuki Burgman.
