Usually, for every car out there, a person that desires to drive it needs first to learn how to drive it and then take some exams in order to obtain a license in order for that person to legally drive a car.
However, there are situations that have occurred frequently in recent years, especially the fact that the police suspend the right of some drivers to drive for a certain period of time due to the fact that they have committed certain traffic violations, and because time is precious today, these drivers cannot afford to stay so long without having a fast means of transport to solve their problems.
Also, the desire of other people, not necessarily of those who have committed traffic offenses, to use a means of transport without needing a driving license, or of persons who have not reached the age required to obtain a driving license have determined manufacturers to build slightly less efficient cars that do not meet the requirements for obtaining a driver’s license, so they can be used without having the obligation to obtain the right to drive them.
