Yes you could be right! It might have been 7.50 for me also . and then the policeman sign a papers??? I bet you it will go up as well, I've had my 50cc for a few years now and last year was the first time I was asked to pay this money by the police.I asked why, they said stamps???
My bike needs doing again! Well last month so I'll see how I get on this time.

Well I am a bit surprised with these posts.
I have been twice now with the log book for my 50 cc scooter (Scripero police station) It has to be stamped by the end of December each year. I cannot drive the scooter hubby does so on both occasions I was in my car the scooter was at home!!!!!
You need a tax number to buy the scooter (that's why its in my name )Hubby didn't have his at the time we bought ours.
You need a full bike licence to drive over a 50 cc bike. BUT and that's a big BUT I speak to people all the time driving bigger bikes without a full licence. I think they would have problems with the insurance if something happened. Not worth the risk in my book.
There is a really helpful bike shop on the way from Sidari to Roda. Second hand 50cc are not easy to come by as the hire companies can keep them for longer.
Ours is a 50cc Yamaha Fly and takes both of us no problem even on our hilly roads. Insurance is 50 euros a year.

I am sorry I am not on the internet so often at this time of the year. Main reason is it's too hot up here in the lounge where my computer is. (sweating buckets just now)
I am insured with Internation Life in Corfu town everything is insured with them. They are on the right heading to the airport, just after the traffic lights for town centre and port, straight ahead for the airport.

Aah - the sublime Maria at International Life. The most civilised insurance person I have ever met and so very helpful. International Life is on the right just before the Potamas junction as you approach Solari. I too have everything insured with them because they are so good. The entrance to their office is on the left hand side of the building and they are on the first floor.

A bit too late for me this year as I just paid 82€ last night but if any of you (as I have no sense of direction) can find a phone number or help me to get in touch with them that would be great. Thanks for clearing it up but as you can see I am almost double your prices and I have never claimed or been in a accident just in case maybe that has went through your minds regarding the price.

Maria's telephone number at International Life is 2661036781 and her fax is 2661032147. If your Greek is not so good she speaks very good English....sorry if I am not supposed to advertise on here but I have no financial gain from recommending a good insurance broker!

I am looking to buy a scooter when I move out there next year- second hand would be fine as trying to keep costs down and this seems to be the cheapest way of getting around. Can anyone recomend any retailers and what sort of price would I be looking at for a second hand 50 cc (just something to get me to work and back) any help appriciated! Anna (a.oliver(at)ghdhair.com)
