    If you you want to rent a 50cc moped in Cape Town, is that possible with only a car license?

    Or do you need a moped/motorcycle license?

    No, you'll need a motorcycle license or at least a Learner's license.

    As the man said.
    FOR RENTAL, a valid international driver's license or country of issue - preferably both.
    There are two classes of motorcycle license - up to 125cc and over 125cc.
    There are also endorsements for automatic only.
