Scooters, Mopeds, Etc... in Arizona
Mopeds and scooters are certainly popular forms of transportation in Arizona, so let's take a quick look at these vehicles.
According to state lawmakers, a moped is a bicycle with a helper motor that has a piston displacement of 50 cc or less, a maximum 1.5 hp brake horsepower or less, and a maximum speed of 25 MPH on a flat surface.
Place your registration decal on the front of the moped.
Moped drivers need financial responsibility coverage (insurance) of at least:
- $15,000 bodily injury liability for one person.
- $30,000 bodily injury liability for two or more persons.
- $10,000 property damage liability.
Depending on its makeup, a scooter could be categorized as a motorcycle, a moped, or even a motorized bicycle. It's important to know where your vehicle falls under these categories, because different rules and procedures apply to each category.
