A moped/scooter bill of sale is a type of legal document that is given to someone who purchases a powered, two (2) wheeled vehicle. Unlike motorcycles, mopeds and scooters are equipped with smaller engines, typically producing under 250cc. The purpose of this bill of sale form is to provide the owner with a means of proving the sale was legal, and that they are the true and rightful owner of the scooter.
Moped vs. Scooter
While it’s common to use the terms interchangeably, there are several differences between a moped and a scooter. They can be difficult to tell apart just by examining the exterior, as they’re both are two (2) wheeled, step-through rideable vehicles that are limited to non-highway use. Where they differ is in their speed; a moped is typically limited to under 50cc with a maximum speed of 28 mph. Some are equipped with foot pedals, where the rider can operate them like an assisted bicycle. Scooters vary in speed and size, and are usually more expensive than mopeds. For simplicity, we’ll use the terms interchangeably.
