New Law Requires Moped Owners To Register Their Vehicle

A new state law requires owners of low-speed mopeds and scooters to register their vehicles with the Indiana BMV.  Beginning January 1st, owners of mopeds or scooters with engines smaller than 50 cubic centimeters must have a registration, a license plate and an Indiana identification card, and they must pass a test identifying street signs.  The license plates will be colored differently than plates for higher-powered mopeds and will cost $26.35 a year. The ID card costs $11.50.  Indiana State Police will give owners of the vehicles a one-month grace period before they start issuing tickets for unregistered bikes. The BMV says local law enforcement agencies also may provide grace periods.
