Answer:

There are different laws and regulations for motorized scooters (such as mopeds and Vespas) and motorcycles in Texas. Let’s look at some of the basics:

  • You must either have a motorcycle endorsement on your driver’s license or a separate scooter license in order to drive a scooter legally in Texas.
  • You must be at least 15 years old and pass a written test in order to get a scooter license in Texas (vehicles with a 50cc engine).
  • All motorized scooters of all sizes must be registered in Texas and pass an annual inspection.
  • Helmets are required for all riders under the age of 21. Helmets may not be required for those with health insurance coverage who have taken a safety course.
  • Mopeds are required to use a headlight in the dark.
  • Motorized scooters must have working brakes.
  • Mopeds must travel as far to the right side of the road as safely possible when traveling slower than surrounding traffic.
  • It is illegal to attach someone on a sled, skates, or other toy vehicle onto a motorized scooter.
