This course is designed for Beginning Moped Riders. A moped is defined as having 50 cc or less, less than 2 hp, and capable of no more than 30 mph. This classroom-only moped course is a great introduction to riding. Classroom topics include: riding gear, preparation, risk management, street strategies, special riding situations and impairment. You will earn a moped course completion card after attending the full classroom session.
You must be at least 14 to enroll; however, you must wait until you are 15 to apply for the motorized bicycle permit. This course is required for those who do not have a driver’s license, are at least 15 years of age, and wish to ride a moped on the street. After completing our course, you can earn your moped permit by bringing your completion certificate to a state exam station and passing their knowledge test and skill test.
