Scooters, the gentler versions of born-to-be-wild motorbikes, require Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) attention. Not only do scooters need to be registered and titled, but you, as an operator, must own a motorcycle endorsement.
To qualify for a motorcycle endorsement, you must meet the following:
- You must be at least 16 years old. Or, if you're only 15, you must have proof of passing a driver's education course approved by the Montana Department of Justice and the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
- Own a Montana driver's license, or be in the process of obtaining one.
- Pass a motorcycle knowledge test (written) and a motorcycle road-skills test. You will need to visit a driver exam station for the tests.
- Pay an annual $0.50 endorsement fee.
The MVD requires scooters, just like motorcycles, to register permanently. To do so you must visit your county treasurer's office. You'll be asked to complete a title application and pay the following fees:
- Permanent registration fee: $53.25
- Motorcycle Safety Fee: $16
- Montana Highway Patrol Salary and Retention Fund: $5
- New Issue Plate: $5
The Motorcycle Safety Fee goes directly into funding motorcycle safety training courses, whereas the Montana Highway Patrol Salary and Retention Fund assists the Highway Patrol in maintaining appropriate manpower numbers.
For questions call the Title and Registration Bureau at (406) 846-6000.
Mopeds, which have pedals in case you want it to be human-propelled, are much more red tape-free; you don't need to have a driver's license or registration to operate a moped.Articles
