Scooters, Mopeds, Etc... in Indiana

Let's take a quick look at two popular and fun alternative means of transportation: mopeds and scooters.


What's a moped?

Under Indiana law, a moped (or motorized bike) cannot travel over 30 MPH.

If a vehicle exceeds these limits, it's likely considered to be a motor vehicle, and its operators must follow the licensing, titling, and registration rules for a motor vehicle. See our sections on these areas for more information.


A scooter may fall under the classification of mopeds or motor vehicles, depending on its makeup. So, follow the rules and procedures for whichever applies to your situation. If you have questions about this, contact a license agency, or call the Bureau of Motor Vehicles at (888) 692-6841. BBB Business Review
