Motorized Bicycle Laws in Arizona

Motorized Bicycles in Arizona

Generic Court GavelThere are many benefits to be had by using a motorized bicycle as your primary (or secondary) method of transportation. With rising gas prices, environmental concerns and a suffering economy, it’s no wonder more and more people are choosing them over other options.

In Arizona, motorized bicycles are a popular choice for getting around, so it’s important to know the laws for them.

Motorized Bicycles (Mopeds)

In Arizona, the definition for a moped or motorized bicycle is a bicycle with a motor to help with propulsion. The motor has to be 50 cc or less, with no more than 1.5 brake hp, and be unable to go more than 25 mph on level ground.

Mopeds do need to be registered with the MVD (Motor Vehicle Division), but they do not need to be titled.

You need to place your registration decal on the front of your moped.

Additionally, moped drivers need to carry a minimum amount of insurance. The minimum insurance requirements are:

  • $15,000 in bodily injury liability for a single rider.
  • $30,000 in bodily injury liability for two or more riders.
  • $10,000 in property damage liability.

Lastly, you need a valid drivers license, and will have to pay a one-time registration fee. The registration fee is $5.00 + $4.50 for tax, or $9.50 in total.
