What do I need to register a moped and obtain a moped decal? (Choose tab)


  • Register your moped

  • Moped registration and decal fees

You will need:

  • Picture ID
  • Proof of ownership, such as a bill of sale
  • A completed Registering Your Moped form
  • A completed Appointment of Agent form if you are acting on behalf of the moped owner
  • Cash, check, money order, or valid debit or credit card

Appointment of Agent form

Schedule an office visit

  • Moped original registration or renewal (includes moped decal) – $15
  • Replacement registration – $2
  • Replacement decal – $2
  • Defective decal – no-fee replacement




  • Mopeds and motorcycles are registered differently under Michigan law. Some retailers may sell what appears to be a moped but is actually classified as a motorcycle. Michigan law (section 257.32b) defines a moped as having:

    • An engine that doesn’t exceed 100 cc’s piston displacement,
    • A power drive system that doesn’t require the operator to shift gears, and
    • A top speed of 30 mph or less on a level surface.

    If the vehicle exceeds any of these criteria, it is classified as a motorcycle and must be registered and titled as such. Operation of a motorcycle requires insurance, a motorcycle endorsement, and helmet use (helmets are required for operators and passengers under age 21).


  • Mopeds must be registered at a Secretary of State office unless operated solely on private property.




  • You may request a replacement moped decal online or at a Secretary of State office if:

    • You are the legal owner of the vehicle.
    • Your moped registration isn’t expired.

    If your moped decal is defective, return it to any Secretary of State office for a no-fee replacement.

    If you believe your moped decal was stolen, contact law enforcement.

Moped, Scooter, E-Bike & Motorcycle Differences

Find out the differences between a moped, scooter & e-bike — do they need motorcycle insurance and a license?

Ease of use, lower gas consumption, less maintenance and nimble size: There are many reasons people might consider motorized two-wheeled options such as scooters, mopeds and e-bikes for driving short distances. Before making a decision, you may want to understand the differences between them and a motorcycle and to familiarize yourself with regulations governing all four. And more importantly, if they require a motorcycle insurance policy or license to ride.

What’s the difference between a moped, scooter, e-bike and motorcycle?

Moped

First named because it was a bicycle with a motor (literally a motorized pedal vehicle), today’s mopeds have a step-through frame (with or without pedals), small wheels (typically 10 inches) and have a 50cc (cee-cee is moto-speak for cubic centimeter) or smaller motor.

Mopeds generally top out at 28 mph (less with increased rider weight) and may achieve triple-digit gas mileage.

Scooter

A scooter (motor scooter) has the same step-through frame and smaller wheels like a moped, but a more powerful motor — 50cc – 250cc. Scooters usually have automatic transmissions and come with lights, turn signals and horns.

Scooters offer superior mobility with higher top speeds and good gas mileage. For example, a 150cc scooter has a top speed of 60 mph and may get up to 70 mpg, while a 250cc scooter can reach 75 mph but might get fewer than 60 mpg. However, you may not be able to use a scooter on the freeway. Check with your local DMV regarding size or horsepower minimums.

E-bike (electric bikes)

Electric bicycles have pedals, an electric motor and have no more than 750 watts.

There are different types of e-bikes:

  • Class 1: Motor activates when the rider is peddling. The motor is also capped at 20 miles per hour.
  • Class 2: Same as a Class 1, but the motor can propel the rider without any peddling.
  • Class 3: Same as a Class 1, but has a speedometer and the motor is capped at 28 miles per hour.

If you think an e-bike is right for you, review some of our e-bike safety tips.

Motorcycle

The bike’s design is what distinguishes a motorcycle. The engine and gas tank are forward and between the driver’s knees. Motorcycles usually have a manual transmission in which drivers need to use a clutch and shift gears. Motorcycles typically have 16-inch tires and the driver sits upright with their back perpendicular to the road.

Motorcycles generally have an engine size that enables them to share the road with other motorized vehicles.

Do you need insurance for a moped, scooter or e-bike?

Coverage will depend on which you purchase. Mopeds, e-bikes and scooters may require liability insurance and each state may differ in their requirements. You may also choose to add comprehensive coverage which normally covers vandalism, theft or storm damage. Contact your local insurance agent to confirm.

Homeowners policies may provide a limited amount of liability and coverage for potential property damage or theft for your scooter, electric bike or moped. But criteria such as cost of replacement, cost of parts and size of motor may require them to have a separate policy. Discuss what your homeowners policy may cover for these vehicles with your agent.

Do you need a license?

Your state regulates licensing requirements. Check local regulations; they may vary from one locale to the next, and license age and requirements could be different for each motorized two-wheeled option. Your state may offer a two-wheeler education course and/or require a skill’s test.

License plates and registration requirements may also be determined by engine size.

Do you need a license to drive a moped?

If the engine is 49cc or less, many states require only a vehicle driver’s license or driver’s permit. A motorcycle license may be necessary if the moped has an engine capacity of 50cc or more. Please check your state’s licensing requirements.

Do you need a license to drive a 49cc scooter?

Scooter laws are similar to mopeds, where scooters under 49cc can be ridden with a vehicle driver’s license. In many states, when the scooter is 50cc’s or more, a motorcycle license is required. Please check your state’s licensing requirements.

Do you need a helmet?

Many states require helmets for motorcyclists under a certain age. If they aren’t required, consider helmet use for you and your passengers for added safety. Check your state and local laws for helmet regulations.

What are some rules of the road?

  • Moped and e-bikes: The slower speeds mean it is not legal to ride on highways and is best used for shorter trips around town on low-speed-limit roads.
  • Scooters: Depending on engine size, these can go faster and might join highway traffic if allowed in your locale. However it may be better to use a scooter for shorter distances rather than the highway since you’d be sharing the road with larger and heavier vehicles that go much faster.

Regardless of what you’re riding, motorized riders need to obey the same traffic and safety laws as all other vehicles. States like California also prohibit passengers on mopeds and e-bikes. In addition, most cities prohibit their use on sidewalks and walking trails. Check with your local DMV for any specific rules in your area.

What about emissions?

While two-wheelers may have better gas mileage, their emissions may be less than stellar. According to Gear Junkie, motorcycles from the 2000s produce over 3,000% more nitric oxide and over 8,000% more carbon monoxide than their vehicle counterparts. Today, many are manufactured with emission-reducing technology. If emissions are important to you, ask before you buy.

If you are in the market for a moped, scooter or e-bike, understand the differences between them, the rules of the road and the requirements of your state. Also consider talking to a State Farm® agent about what the best coverage for your new ride is, whether it is homeowners, motorcycle or another type of policy. And don’t forget to consider liability insurance and learn about the additional protection it may provide.

Driver’s license category table 2023

The driver’s license has changed over the past few years. If earlier the categories were divided simply into “motorcycle”, “passenger car”, “truck”, “bus” and trailer control, now their range has become wider. Categories have been subdivided into subcategories.

In this article, we will help beginners and experienced drivers get comfortable with modern driver’s licenses.

Contents

  • Description of driving license categories
  • Driving license category
  • License category for public transport

Description of driving license categories

Two-wheeled vehicles are divided into three categories:

  • M – mopeds;
  • A1 – light motorcycles;
  • A – motorcycles.

Category M is for driving mopeds and light quadricycles. It opens automatically when you pass an exam for any of the other categories. In fact, any student can drive a moped. The obligation to obtain a license was introduced due to the large number of deaths on the roads as a result of accidents involving a moped. That is, the authors of the traffic rules believe that after taking a theory course and learning how to drive on any serious vehicle, you will be more aware and accurate in driving these simple motorcycle vehicles. You don’t have to pay for the category.

Category A1 for “weak” motorcycles up to 125 “cubes” can be opened from the age of 16 – this is its main feature. However, the owner of the rights marked A1 will not be able to drive a cool bike with an engine of more than 125 “cubes”.

Category A – the most extensive, it allows you to drive all types of motor vehicles, including those with a sidecar. It also opens up access to the management of ATVs up to 400 kilograms. That is, having studied for category A, you will automatically open categories A1 and M.

License category for driving a car

As for cars, the changes are minimal. Category B, as before, allows you to drive a car – one that is up to 3.5 tons and has no more than 8 seats in the cabin. It is advisable for beginners to practice driving skills on a used car. There are different situations on the road, and a used car in this case is the best option. But 70% of used cars are sold with problems: fines, collateral, accidents, leasing, etc. Therefore, it is recommended to check the history of the car before buying.

Before concluding a sales contract, we also advise you to check the owner of the car through a special service. The check will show whether the seller has problems with the law, whether his passport is valid, whether there are debts and enforcement proceedings. If serious problems are found, it is better to refuse the deal. View an example of a report

Category B was added to B1 – tricycle control and category E – trailer, only in 2023 these two categories, if you learn from them, “stick together” together. Thus, the driver of a car with a trailer must have a BE category license.

Those who have a driver’s license and drive know that the table of categories of driver’s license, drawn on the back of the card, is much wider.

In total, in 2023, a driver’s license in Russia has 16 available categories, some of which cannot be called completely “civilian” and are available only to cadets studying to drive public transport.

The “cars” category, only heavier, also includes trucks and buses. If earlier there were only two categories for them – C and D, now they have also been “split”. Trucks from 3.5 tons fell into category C, cars from 3.5 to 7.5 tons ended up in C1 – medium trucks, also took out CE and C1E as a separate category – the same, only with a trailer.

Important note and difference: open category C does not allow driving small trucks up to 3.5 tons and cars.

Public transport license category

Category D means the right to drive a bus. In 2021, new categories have appeared that divide buses into subspecies, as well as allow you to drive a tram or trolleybus:

  • D1 – small buses;
  • DE – buses with a trailer;
  • D1E – small buses with a trailer;
  • Tm – trams;
  • Tb – trolleybuses.

The category of “small buses” includes vehicles that are popularly called “route taxis”. These are cars like the Gazelle or the Hyundai Bogdan, which can accommodate 12-15 passengers.

Trams and trolleybuses have only recently been placed in a separate category, earlier information on the right to drive these types of vehicles was indicated. 91.1.
