My son is 16 in March and I am looking to get him a moped. I have read that on January 19th the law has changed regarding mopeds, mainly that they have to be restricted to 45km/h after Jan 19th as opposed to 50km/h previously. Can he ride a moped registered before Jan 19th that complies with the old law or, since he isn't old enough to ride a moped until after the Jan 19th, can he only ride a moped that is restricted to 45km/h meaning I have to buy a new one. If that is the case which manufacturers are making geared bikes as opposed to scooters that comply.
