Motorcycle Insurance Law Started October 1, 2012

Maryland Moped LawPost Date October 4, 2012 –  Maryland State Motorcycle Insurance and motor vehicle law now requires both moped and motor scooter operators to purchase motorcycle insurance.  In addition to motorcycle insurance; Maryland State Law will also require moped and scooter owners and passengers to wear both helmets and eye protection while operating  on Maryland’s Streets and Roadways.  As I mentioned in the title of today’s Blog, these laws became effective yesterday October 1, 2012.  The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) announced any Maryland  Drivers which want to operate any type of vehicle on a Maryland Roadway must maintain a valid US Driver’s license.  Of course if you drive a car in the state of Maryland, you must maintain an operators license.  In the past, all you needed to operate a moped or motor scooter was a automobile operators license.  Effective yesterday, you will be required to obtain a motorcycle permit and license before you can legally operate any motorized two wheel vehicle. Any Maryland Resident or Non-recent with a suspended driver’s license  in a any US State will  be permitted to drive any motor vehicles on Maryland’s streets and highways. Moped, Motorcycle and Scooter owners caught operating without a helmet, eye protection or a windshield will be levied a fine from $50.00 to $500.
