David asked: It’s illegal to drive a gas-powered bicycle on public roads but do I need a valid fl dl to do so?
Whether you have a driver’s license is not relevant. As you note, a gas-powered bicycle is not a legal vehicle. You cannot legally drive a gas-powered bicycle on the roads.
However, it was reported that there is new law about gas-powered bicycles that was signed into law recently. I have not been able to find that senate or house bill. If anyone knows more about it, please advise.
