Hi all,

Is it possible to rent a small cc motorbike/ moped in ladakh with out a valid license?

Would like to rent one to get to nearby places in ladakh and am actually quite proficient in handling motorbikes having traveled throughout south east asia on a bike (no license needed!).

Can someone pls fill me in on the above?

I dont think they would let you rent out bikes without a valid licence. My group rented out from three groups in Leh and all of them asked for licence.
The last time I was in Ladakh was around 3 years back and I dont recall seeing any mopeds in Leh

A licence, either Indian or Foreign is a must if you want to rent a bike. I'm not sure about the possibility of renting small mopeds. This is a mountainous region with some bad stretches why would any one want to rent a moped? You need good horse power and a firm suspension.

No license = no valid insurance coverage possible = in case of accident: go straight to jail. Besides, no renter will want to risk their bike, it's dangerous enough as it is over there.
