Chief Explains Moped Licensing Law

“Summer time is near, school will soon be out, and there will be more children riding their bikes and playing near the streets. The Crothersville Police Department reminds all motorists to drive more carefully in and around our streets,” said Crothersville Chief of Police Vurlin McIntosh.

If your child operates a moped, remember that moped safety and responsibility belongs to the parents, he said.

The chief explained that moped’s are any motorized vehicle 49cc or below. To legally drive on public streets the operator must be at least 15 years old, have an Indiana Identification Card, wear a helmet and goggles, and have no riders.

The chief said any motorized two-wheeler 50cc or more are considered motorcycles which must be licensed, registered and operators must obtain an Indiana Licensed Operator Motor Cycle endorsement.
