We know you have questions. Let’s answer some general questions to help you get more familiar.
DO I NEED A MOTORCYCLE LICENSE TO RIDE A SCOOTER?
Yes. In the State of Missouri, riding a scooter larger than 49cc requires a standard motorcycle endorsement. If you do not have a motorcycle endorsement you will need to complete your written and riding test at your local DMV.
DOES FLYING TIGER OFFER AN INSTRUCTIONAL RIDING A COURSE?
Our staff is happy to provide new riders with a basic introduction to safely operating your scooter at the time of purchase. In-depth riding courses are available at Forest Park Community College and can be scheduled by visiting the Motorcycle Riders Course page. We highly suggest this course for all riders, new and experienced alike.
AM I REQUIRED TO REGISTER MY SCOOTER AND GET A LICENSE PLATE?
Yes. In the State of Missouri, your scooter does require a standard motorcycle license plate and registration with the department of motor vehicles.
ARE ANY SALES OR PROPERTY TAXES OWED AFTER I PURCHASE A NEW OR PRE-OWNED SCOOTER?
Sales tax on all new scooters above 49cc is paid through the Department of Revenue at the time of registration. Property tax is assessable in the State of Missouri depending on your county.
DOES MY NEW SCOOTER COME WITH A TITLE?
New vehicles, including scooters, are shipped with an MSO or Manufacturers’ Certificate of Origin. This document serves as a record of manufacture for the specific vehicle including a vehicle identification number (VIN), place of manufacture, manufacturing date, vehicle weight, power, etc. This document serves in place of a title until the vehicle is registered if required to do so.
IS INSURANCE REQUIRED TO OPERATE MY SCOOTER ON PUBLIC ROADS?
You are legally required to carry at least liability insurance in the State of Missouri for a scooter greater in size than 49cc. Some riders do choose to insure their scooters for damage, loss, and personal injury. Check the local laws in your city or state and contact your insurance provider for details on how to protect yourself and your GT150!
SHOULD I WEAR PROTECTIVE GEAR SUCH AS A HELMET OR LEATHER JACKET?
While we don’t expect you to adopt the black leather, patches, and metal spikes look right away, we do encourage all riders to protect themselves as best as they can. A DOT (department of transportation) rated helmet, protective clothing such as padded or armored jackets, gloves, and pants, all help to keep you safe when you’re out on the road.
ARE SCOOTERS AVAILABLE FOR TEST RIDES?
Normally, we have one or two scooters prepped and available for test rides. All you would need to provide is a valid driver’s license with an M (motorcycle) endorsement, and to read and sign a waiver of liability. Flying Tiger can provide helmets for test riding.
