Scooters have smaller engines and are generally lighter than motorcycles, making them easier to handle for beginners. This can help build confidence and provide a safer learning experience for someone new to the road.


Riding a scooter or bike can help beginners develop basic motorcycle riding skills, such as balance, coordination, and handling. These skills can then be applied when transitioning to a motorcycle. 


Another thing to remember is that scooters are often less expensive than motorcycles, making them a more affordable option for those who are just starting out.


Overall, starting out with a scooter can allow beginners to get a feel for riding on two wheels without feeling overwhelmed by the power and weight of a full-sized motorcycle.


In Taiwan, you are required to have your scooter license for at least one year before applying for your heavy-motorcycle license. This can help the learner ease into the experience of riding a motorcycle.
