Scooters, Mopeds, Etc... in New Hampshire
Mopeds and scooters, the well-behaved stepchildren of motorcycles, will never be associated with words such as reckless, breakneck, or devil-may-care, but New Hampshire's New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) still requires these motorized bikes to be registered.
Before huffing into a registration office with pen and checkbook in hand you first need to determine if your bike classifies as a moped or scooter and not a motorcycle.
According to the DMV a moped or scooter must meet the following restrictions:
- It must have an engine of 50 cubic centimeters or less.
- It cannot exceed 30 mph on level terrain.
- It cannot shift.
- It cannot exceed 2 horsepower.
When registering bring a bill of sale and the bike's old registration form (if it's used), or the manufacturer's statement of origin (MSO) (if it's new).
It costs $3 to register a moped.
That's great! We would love to hear about your experience...
