New Moped Laws Coming To Indiana

Moped & scooter drivers should be aware of some big changes coming at the beginning of the year in Indiana. Starting Thursday, low-speed scooter drivers will be required to buy license plates, and take a street sign test at the BMV. Mopeds will now be referred to as “Motor Driven Cycles,” and separated into smaller and larger engine categories. Drivers will need to be at least 15-years-old, have a valid driver’s license, learners permit or Indiana ID with a moped endorsement. The BMV says the change will create an equal playing field across the state for law enforcement and drivers. Indiana State Police will be granting a one month grace period for drivers to get properly registered.
