Mopeds now need safety inspection, annual registration

If youʻre a moped rider, listen up:  A new state law that went into effect Jan. 1 requires the annual safety inspection and registration of mopeds.

City officials say moped owners will receive a registration notice 45 days prior to the registration deadline. The deadline to inspect and register the moped will be the month in which it was originally licensed. The moped must still be inspected and registered if the notice is not received.

Mopeds will need to be safety inspected before a registration can be completed. Safety inspection deficiencies must be corrected and the moped re-inspected before the registration will be accepted.. The safety inspection fee is $13.24 plus tax. The regisration fee will be $32.50 for the first year and $27.50 in following years.
