Moped vs. Electric Scooter

Andrew D. /

Hello.

This may be a stupid question, but I am confused as far as the difference between a moped and an electric scooter. I recently got an electric scooter for Christmas (I am 16 years of age) and I don't know whether or not it would be safe let alone legal to ride around. I don't have a license yet, only my permit, but how do I make sure that nothing is going to happen to it in the event that I find out it's illegal when I get pulled over? That would suck. And knowing me I would probably find out if it is illegal the hard way too. Any help would be appreciated. thank you

Re: Moped vs. Electric Scooter

-what state are you in (i don't mean intoxicated or not, i mean california, michigan).

-electric scooter? as in a bicycle with an elcetric engine or a goped?

-check for your state's DMV webpage, it should tell you.

if your scooter goes max 20mph, and is electric, all you should need is a bicycle helmet.

thanks!

One more stupid question.

Where can I ride this? Most likely not on the side walk, but definitely not the street. I would like to live to see my driver's license. :)
