Go to and get their e-mail address. It's I think. They are in Wisconsin and should know everything since they sell and repair scooters and mopeds.Okay?

Moped Laws

there should also be a link in the links archive for state laws.... if not, then go to and look up moped laws... it should have a post from someone in your state.

Re: My experience

In South Carolina; If the previous owner's title is signed over to you or if you somehow have the dealer's or manufacturer's original sales document the state will issue a new title. Otherwise, the procedure is to go to a moped store where I was issued (for $45) a moped plate (and sticker) and an unofficial looking document that has the VIN No., a plate (sticker) number. moped make and model and owner's name and address. Supposedly, a copy of this document is kept on file by a semi-official motorcycle organization. I keep reminding myself to find out who they are, but have not. The idea is to use this as ownership proof when selling or reporting the moped as stolen.

Sometimes your local library will have a big book o' statutes. I know when I moved to Minneapolis (I'm a big bicycle geek as well) I looked up all of the bicycle laws at the library.

Also, your local DMV might have some info. Although the DMV is a scary and evil place, sometimes they just have a wall of pamphlets. In MN, the DMV Motorcycle pamphlet has all the moped info in it as well. I got mine from the library, tho'.
