what area of CA do you ride in?Hey guys, I was wondering since i just got a motorized bike, Can i just go out and ride it right away? or do i need special licences and will i get pulled over? sorry im new to this
Im in Orange County but ive read u dont need a licence as long as you dont go faster than 20 mph.what area of CA do you ride in?
Some areas enforce these laws and others don't.
There are lots of threads here about CA motorized bike laws..........
To be legal you need a M2 or M1 endorsement on your drivers license.
A $20 one time license plate from the DMV
DOT rated helmet.
Left side mirror, horn, lights
Where did you read that?Im in Orange County but ive read u dont need a licence as long as you dont go faster than 20 mph.
Get the $20 lifetime moped plate/ ID card.Yeah, I registered my new GEBE mountain bike and got the paper & plate. It maxes out around 27-29mph so far... so, I'm not lying when I say max speed is 30 mph. I'll go in sometime and apply for the M1/M2 permit. Also, contacted my insurance agent and he was baffled at first... then, looked into it and got me a price quote.
Other than that, best I can do is outfit the bike properly and get an adequate looking helmet. Then, it's just riding responsibly (not going too fast) and following traffic laws... lots of ghost pedaling probably doesn't hurt either.
