Type of License Required

If you own a valid Tennessee driver's license, no endorsement is required to operate a motorized bicycle that is 50 cc or less.

Registration Requirements

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.

You'll also need to take proof of identity and proof of Tennessee residency.

Fees and Taxes

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.

Safety

Helmets are required when operating a moped or scooter.

DMV.org provides How To Buy the Right Helmet, Buying the Best Goggles, and Motorcycles and Weather Conditions to help you enjoy your moped or scooter as safely as possible.
