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:

  • For motorized scooters with more than a 50cc engine, riders must hold a motorcycle license or motorcycle license endorsement  – which requires a written test and a road test.
  • Scooter users must have a Class C Driver’s License for motorized scooters with a 50cc engine or less.
  • 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.

  9. Ummm the last line says I can’t pull somebody on sled ,skates etc behind a scooter/moped. Does this mean I can do so on my sport bike that has 200x the power? After all it’s a motorcycle not a scooter. I know it’s a stretch but would be an awesome loophole.
