I would like to know what i must do to buy a car or a scooter.

I am not from USA and i just bought a condo in St Petersburg so now i need some kind of transportation.

I am just going to be there a few month each year so i am considering maybe a scooter instead of a car.
Can i drive on "pinellas trail" with a scooter?
Can i drive it with my drivers license for a car?

Is it possible to buy a car and then easely sell it when i leave for home?
Do car sellers also purchase the car back?

What are the paperwork, insuranse and so on that i need to know about?

Many of the ppl who come here for only a short time buy a car and leave it at their property, until they come back .
You can't ride a scooter at the Pinellas trail. Only bycycles.
I believe to buy a car or motorcycle you don't need any papers, however they probably ask for the drivers' license.
I don't think the dealers would buy a car back from you , except taking it back as a trade in, which would be a much lesser price.

Hillsborough County Florida DMV

I remember being asked for my birth certificate and other documents for the driver's license and when registering the car. Would recommend you visit the link above.

Certain sized scooters don't need a license -

I do not have a licence for a motorcycle but a scooter wouldnt be able to go on pinellas trail either?

In Sweden, we count scooters almost like bicycles. They don't even need license plates.

i am going to rent out my condo and then i think that the tenants needs the parking space and that they would pay less rent if there are no parking space.

There are guest parkings however, i wonder if i can point in that direction... maybe not...

When you register your vehicle, you might need a driver's license. Would recommend reading through the DMV website.
