The state of Tennessee does require riders of motorized bicycles (mopeds) under 125 ccs to have an M class "limited license."
Other types of motorcycles in Tennessee, including scooters and mopeds, are titled and registered in the same manner as motorcycles are titled and registered.
In a nutshell, you'll need to visit your local County Clerk's office with the Manufacturer's Statement of Origin (MSO) or the title you acquire from the individual from whom you purchase the moped or scooter.
The fees and taxes you must pay to title and register your moped or scooter vary, and the Department of Revenue (DOR) advises contacting your local County Clerk's office for specific details.
Helmets are required when operating a moped or scooter.
