I asked a cop today what he'd look for on a moped to not ticket it. He guessed and said mirrors and blinkers and told me to call CHP. I called CHP, he said nay to the mirrors and blinkers as long as there's a break light. After that dude learned some things for himself he said they won't or don't register it and that it doesn't need a plate. But that if I go over 30mph I'll need an M1 or M2.
But I sent my reg.230 form in a few weeks ago, without a bill of sale(cause the one I had was weaksauce), and they sent it back saying there was no record of the vin and that they can't credit the $18 bucks to anything. I sent it back with a 'Statement of Facts' form from dmv, on whichI wrote that I want an original title and plate. That was a week ago. I'll let cha know.
So were you informed that you need a plate?
