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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need a license for a scooter/moped?

The majority of states base their licensing requirements on the size of the engine, with 50cc being the most common level. MotorBiscuit.com provides a comprehensive scooter registration guide for all 50 states to see what one must do prior to riding a scooter.

How fast can a scooter/moped go?

Mopeds (specifically) are limited to ~30mph unless modified by the owner. Scooters, on the other hand, are not bound by a standard limit and can go significantly faster if a high-powered model is purchased.

Where can you sell a moped or scooter?

Owners can go about selling their moped or scooter in two (2) ways:

  • Sell to a dealer – While it won’t yield the best sale price, owners can bring in their moped or scooter to their nearest used motorcycle/scooter dealer for valuation. If the moped won’t run, or the dealer can’t get a good price by reselling it, the owner should be prepared to be turned down.
  • Sell online – Creating a digital advertisement for the scooter or moped is the recommended approach for getting top-dollar. The number of platforms used to list the vehicle is up to the owner, but more listings usually leads to more potential buyers. A few popular options include CycleTraderCraigslisteBay, and Facebook Marketplace.
