Renting mopeds or scooters in Sweden

I am doing a Baltic cruise in July and one of the ports we'll be stopping in is Visby. It looks very picturesque and I'm looking forward to it. Can anyone tell me what the rules are pertaining to moped or scooter rental in Sweden? I know one needs an EU license for a motorcycle but I couldn't find anything on mopeds.

This page from a rent service in Visby provides some information

http://www.uthyrningen.com/rent-a-moped

Through the Swedish Transport Agency you can get this information

http://www.korkortsportalen.se/andra-sprak/

Rules about mopeds have changed recently (a few years back). If you turned 15 before the 1st of October 2009, you don't need any license or permit. for a class 2 moped (max 25 km/h). If you turned 15 after the 1st of October, you need to pass an education and a test. As you correctly has observed, an EU-scooter (or moped class 1 - max 45km/h) demands a EU-scooter drivers licence. If you have a drivers license for car, motorcycle or higher, you don't need anything else for a either moped class.

I haven't found any special demands for foreigners, so probably there will be no problems as long as you have a valid drivers license (international drivers license rules may apply - check information in the link to the Swedish Transport Agency).
