Caloi revived the traditional furniture, which was very successful in the 80s, but with new features. The new model has an electric motor and a range of over 30 km on a single charge. However, the question that remains is whether you need a CNH for e-biking.

In the past, it was possible to drive without a Mobylette license, but is this the case today? Find out what the Brazilian legislation says about the CNH for riding an electric bike.
After all, do I need a CNH to ride an e-bike?
Not just the moped and e-bikes, but other 50cc motorcycles raise the same doubts. Many motorists buy a vehicle without knowing what the law says about it.
However, yes, you need a license to ride an electric bike or the famous “cinquantinhas”. In fact, the necessary license is called Authorization to drive mopeds (ACC). People who have a regular motorcycle license can also regularly drive the little ones.
To obtain the ACC, a person must be aged 18 or over and take a preparatory course like any other. This means that there will be theoretical lessons and practical driving lessons. All riders must wear helmets and other devices suitable for ordinary motorcycles.
Can there be e-bikes that don’t need a CNH?
Not. Even motorized bicycles must be driven by duly authorized citizens. The steps to get a CNH correctly, even in the ACC category, are:
- Psychological assessment (psychotechnical test);
- physical and mental aptitude test;
- Complete a total of 20 hours of lessons for the theoretical and technical course and the theoretical exam;
- Complete a minimum of 5 hours of practical lessons and driving test.
It should be mentioned that there is an explicit recommendation for shops to only sell e-bikes and other similar motorcycles to qualified people. Also, the trader cannot sell the vehicle to anyone under the age of 18 or suggest that he does not need a CNH to ride an e-bike, for example.
So, if you like the style of these small motorcycles, know that you will need to be duly registered and of legal age to drive them.
