A bill now headed to the Governor for his signature creates two classifications of motor-driven cycle. Anything with a cylinder capacity exceeding 50 cubic centimeters is considered a Class A cycle.
To drive one of these you need a valid license, proof of insurance and a license plate.
If your bike is smaller than that, you won’t need a driver’s license but will be required to have a valid state ID, pass a written test on road rules and your bike will need a plate but not insurance.
Those in favor of the bill say that it will help the developmentally disabled or those that have lost their drivers license and insurance and have no other way to get around.
It is estimated that there are around 100,000 mopeds on the road fit into the small bike category.
