NC Moped Registration Law

NC Moped Registration Law

As of July 1, 2015, all mopeds are required to be registered with NCDMV. The State law only applies to mopeds that are 50 ccs or less. Mopeds that are over 50 ccs are considered motorcycles and require a title, in addition to registration and a driver’s license. If the moped/scooter is 50 ccs or less, then it does not need be titled.

This new registration requirement requires that the moped must have a manufacturer’s certificate of origin. The cost of registering each moped is $18 annually, although a few areas have lower prices, and the plates must be displayed on the rear of the vehicle. In addition to the registration requirement, starting July 2016 mopeds will be required to have minimum liability insurance as well.

While there are mixed views on these new requirements, there are some benefits to the moped owner. In the event of an accident, having an official record of ownership will make it easier for the owner to recover any property damage expenses through insurance claims. Without any official record of ownership, the insurance company will more than likely deny the claim.

Oftentimes there is a stigma or prejudice against moped riders. If you have been in an accident, the insurance companies will more than likely try to blame you. Many of these accidents are not the fault of the moped driver. It is more likely that someone in a much bigger vehicle was not paying proper attention.
