I’m planning on buying a new moped scooter tomorrow which may be 50cc – 150cc. Do I need a license for the mopeds? And can I drive them on side walks? Thanks!
I live in Michigan if that helps.

Chosen Answer:

There is not such thing as a “moped scooter” in Michigan.

A “Moped” is a 2- or 3-wheeled vehicle of more up to 50cc, up to 2 bhp, and cannot go faster than 30 mph. I know of very vehicles that less than 2 bhp. Thus, the vehicle you will be buying is a “motorcycle.”

Repeat: You are *NOT* buying a “moped.” You are buying a “motorcycle.” Ignore that 95% of people will be calling it a moped scooter or whatever. Ignore the salesman is an idiot. You are getting a motorcycle — legally no difference than a 600cc sport bike or a 600 lb Harley.

You will be riding a motorcycle. Your vehicle will need a title, registration, and a motorcycle license plate. You will have to get motorcycle insurance. You will need a motorcycle driver’s license. You will need a motorcycle helmet.

There is *NO* motorized vehicle that may legally driven/ridden on the sidewalk, other than momentary than to pass a driveway. You are not legally allowed to park your motorcycle on the sidewalk.

Insurance on a moped less than 50 CCs

2005-05-20 11:23:18 by AwesomeAdam

Could anyone tell me what the laws for insuring a moped of less than 50 CCs are in IL? I have been looking through the Illinois Vehicle Code on the Illinois General Assembly website and I cannot find this info.
I have been told that all mopeds need to be insured.
I have a 1984 Di Blasi folding motorbike that no company will insure and I want to ride it really bad.
Thanks All,
