    Moped License Plate

    When you register your moped, you will receive a license plate and expiration decal to attach to the back of your moped. 

    Attaching your moped license plate

    Attach the license plate on to the mounted holder/bracket. Ensure that the license plate is rear facing and clearly visible and legible. No license plate should be affixed to the front of the moped.
    Many mopeds come with a license plate holder; if yours
    doesn’t have one, you can purchase one online or at a local automobile supply store. The license plate holder must be placed on the back (rear fender) or side mounted, also facing the rear.

    Expiration Date
    All moped registrations now expire on March 31 instead of December 31 to coincide with the timing at which most customers renew their moped registration. The fee to register your moped is $40 and is valid for up to two years.
