The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles is
sending 26,799 letters to moped owners reminding them about a new law
that will require the vehicles to carry liability insurance beginning
Letters were mailed last week to moped owners whose vehicles are registered with NCDMV.
Moped owners must provide NCDMV proof of
liability insurance coverage from their insurance company or take a
Certificate of Liability Insurance form, available from their insurance
carrier, to their local license plate agency. They may also provide the
insurance company’s name and policy number to their local LPA.
Failure to provide proof of insurance to NCDMV could result in their license plate being revoked.
Once NCDMV receives insurance information from a
moped owner, the owner will be issued a corrected registration card
showing the insurance information for the moped.
Mopeds were first required to register with the
Division in July 2015. The requirement for insurance coverage was added
in a law passed by the General Assembly to become effective a year
