You cannot register or operate any of the motorized devices from the list below on any street, highway, parking lot, sidewalk or other area in New York State that allows public motor vehicle traffic. You may be arrested if you do.


A motorcycle is a motor vehicle that has a seat or saddle for the use of the rider, and is designed to travel on not more than three wheels in contact with the ground per California Vehicle Code (CVC) 400 (a) and whose motor displaces more than 150 cubic centimeters (150cc).


Section 406(a) CVC refers to a moped or motorized bicycle as any two or three wheeled device having fully operative pedals for propulsion by human power, or having no pedals if powered solely by electrical energy, has an automatic transmission, and a motor which produces less than 4 gross brake horsepower and is capable of propelling the device at a maximum speed of not more than 30 miles per hour on level ground.


Class 1 electric bicycle is equipped with a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling, and that ceases to provide assistance when the bicycle reaches a speed of 20 miles per hour.


Class 2 electric bicycle is equipped with a motor that may be used exclusively to propel the bicycle, and that is not capable of providing assistance when the bicycle reaches a speed of 20 miles per hour.


Class 3 electric bicycle is equipped with a motor that provides assistance only when the rider is pedaling, and that ceases to provide assistance when the bicycle reaches a speed of 28 miles per hour. This bicycle is equipped with a speedometer.


A motorized scooter is any two-wheeled device that has handlebars and a floorboard that is designed to be stood upon when riding, may have a driver seat that does not interfere with the ability to stand and ride, and is powered by electricity or other power source but may also be designed to be powered by human propulsion. A motorized scooter shall at all times be equipped with a muffler, and the exhaust system shall not be modified to amplify or increase noise level. The maximum speed limit scooters may be driven is 15 mph, and scooters may be operated on a bicycle path, trail, or bikeway unless prohibited. If operated on a roadway with a posted speed limit greater than 25 mph, scooter must be operated in a Class II bicycle lane. If operated on a roadway with a posted speed limit less than 25 mph, riding in a bicycle lane is not required.


An electrically motorized board, or hoverboard, is any wheeled device that has a floorboard designed to be stood upon when riding, that is not greater than 60 inches deep and 18 inches wide, and designed to transport only one person. The device has an electric propulsion system averaging less than 1,000 watts, with a maximum speed of no more than 20 miles per hour when powered solely by the propulsion system on a paved level surface. The device may be designed to be powered by human propulsion. The maximum speed an electrically motorized board may be operated is 15 miles per hour, and only on roadways with a speed limit of 35 miles per hour or less, unless on a Class II or Class IV bikeway. If operated during darkness the device must be equipped with, or the operator must have attached to their person, a headlamp that emits white light that is visible from 300 feet, a red reflector on the rear that is visible from 500 feet, and white or yellow reflectors on each side visible from 200 feet.


A pocket bike is a two-wheeled motorized device having a seat or saddle for the use of the rider, that is not designed or manufactured for highway use. A pocket bike does not include an off-highway motorcycle, as defined in CVC 436.


Pass a riding skills test. DMV will accept a certificate of competence from an approved novice motorcyclist training program instead of a skills test, such as the California Motorcyclist Safety Program.


Motorcycles, Motor-Driven Cycles, Motorized Bicycles/Mopeds (Section 406(a) CVC ) - A helmet meeting Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 218, self-certified by the manufacturer and displaying a 'DOT' emblem must be worn by all riders of motorcycles, motor-driven cycles, and motorized bicycles/mopeds.


Motorized Scooters (Section 407.5 CVC) - A bicycle helmet meeting the standards of either the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) or the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) must be worn to operate a motorized scooter.


A motorized bicycle (moped) is defined by law as a pedal bicycle with a helper motor, electric or gas-powered, capable of a maximum speed of no more than 25 miles per hour on a flat surface. A moped has a maximum displacement of less than 50 cubic centimeters (cc)(no more than 1.5 brake horsepower).


If a vehicle meets all the conditions as defined by law (see above) it may be registered as a moped. Vehicles without pedals that are less than 50 ccs cannot be registered as mopeds; rather, they must be registered as motorcycles, regardless of engine size.


*If you are under age 18 and only operate an ATV or dirt bike at licensed special events, you are exempt from the safety education course. You are also exempt if the ATV or dirt bike is used on public lands or waters or across a public highway as an incident to or in the actual performance of the operations of a farm that is adjacent to the public land and or water or public highway upon which the vehicle is being operated.


Miniature motorcycles are illegal to operate on public roadways. The miniature motorcycles, also known as pocket bikes and pocket rockets, can only be operated on private property. This also applies to unregistered go-carts.


One misconception is that they meet the legal definition of a motor assisted scooter. However, pocket bikes do not meet the statutory requirements of a motor assisted scooter as stated in Chapter 551.31 of the Texas Transportation Code.


There are several reasons why the mini-motorcycles are illegal on public roadways, but the two primary reasons are that they cannot be registered as vehicles and they do not meet equipment standards required by federal and Texas law. Moreover, because mini motorcycles are motor vehicles they cannot be ridden on sidewalks.


Drivers using mini-motorcycles on public streets could face numerous potential citations, including operating an unregistered vehicle, no driver license, no insurance, and various equipment violations. It is also illegal to operate pocket bikes on sidewalks.


To be legally operated on a public street or highway, a motor vehicle must have a certificate of title and be properly registered with the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT). In general, TXDOT does not authorize the issuance of certificates of title for mini motorcycles. Therefore, the mini motorcycles are not eligible for registration.


Some buyers have been told that mini motorcycles can be legally operated on low speed streets because they qualify as motor assisted scooters under Section 551.301, Transportation Code. However, under Section 551.301, a motor assisted scooter must have a deck on which the operator can stand and an engine not exceeding 40 cc. Mini motorcycles not only lack a deck for standing, but most models have an engine displacement exceeding the 40 cc limit.


At some point, you may have noticed motorists riding these mini motorcycles on various streets. With knees pointing out and the rider zipping conveniently about, they make for a fun and eco-friendly mode of transportation.


Mini motorcycles, also known as pocket bikes, are motorized bikes that are smaller than the standard motorcycles. Standard pocket bike size is about two feet in height and a weight of approximately 50 lbs. A typical mini motorcycle comes with a 40cc engine (40cc to mph is about 40-50 miles per hour). However, some are as powerful as 120cc and can traverse to speeds of up to 50 mph.


There is often confusion over what the difference is between a motorcycle vs. scooter. The confusion lies in the fact that there are various types of motorcycles and scooters available. Moreover, the legalities of operating these two vehicle types also vary depending on an array of factors, such as:


Is a mini motorcycle street legal? Can you ride a mini bike on the sidewalk? The answer to these questions depends on the state and local jurisdiction you are in. Many states, such as Texas and California, ban the operation of pocket bikes on all public roads, highways, trails, and sidewalks. Operation of pocket bikes is only allowed on private property in these states.


Other states permit the operation of street legal pocket bikes on public roads provided they comply with state or city rules and regulations. For example, in Nevada, recreational vehicles, including scooters and pocket bikes, are allowed on public roads as long as it meets Nevada Revised Statutes and is equipped with the following safety features:


Other limitations for operating on public or private roads can also apply. Some states mandate a minimum age for legal operation of a pocket bike. Additionally, if insurance companies refuse to insure mini motorcycles, that would automatically make them illegal to drive on public roads.


A mini motorcycle can be just as, if not more, dangerous than a full-sized motorcycle. If driven on public streets, the lower height makes it difficult for other drivers to spot. This lower height, combined with the high speeds these vehicles can potentially travel at, poses a real danger of a motorcycle accident happening to drivers operating a street legal pocket bike.


Dangers exist not only on public streets but also on private property as well. The small size of pocket bikes makes them less stable than other three-wheelers or all-terrain vehicles. Furthermore, the smaller size may encourage younger, more inexperienced drivers to operate the vehicle. These inexperienced drivers may not understand how fast a 40cc engine can go and become reckless in their driving. 041b061a72
