    1: not driving in accordance with your licence conditions, and 2: because of that driving without insurance. Penalties could include the bike being impounded and destroyed, and a big hike in insurance costs when you renew.

    Way to avoid being caught: Put the restrictions back on!

    Moped is a motorized pedal cycle. Maximum size of engine is UNDER 50 cc.  Maximum speed is 28MPH.

    Because of its low speed and small engine size, you do not need a motorcycle license to operate it and you are not allowed to operate it on Highways.  It is an in-town grocery getter. A glorified bicycle.  Insurance for it is very low...because of these 2 factors.(small engine and low speed)

    .  If you got a Scooter that was 50cc and can go faster than 28MPH, you got a Motorcycle.  You need a motorcycle license, meaning you got to pass the testing from DMV first, and you got to buy Motorcycle Insurance.

    Once you got a motorcycle license you could ride a 1000cc motorcycle at Freeway speeds (70MPH) so you is a motor vehicle.  Insurance is MUCH HIGHER.

    Them is the rules.

    So right away, the insurance does not cover an overly fast moped(because you should have Motorcycle insurance and pay the higher rate.)

    Don't want to get caught?  Then stay off the road and ride on old logging roads(which the suspension for a moped is not meant to handle)so you eventually destroy the bike.

    Even if you bought it that way, it is YOUR responsibility this LAW.

    If they catch you, the bike goes into the IMPOUND lot.  Gonna cost you $100+ to get it out.,,to park it at home.

    In otherwords, you paid for a PoS from somebody.  You lose.

    locally maybe $500.00 fine, could go to $1000.00 bod to get out of jail. 16 locally means OK to ride 90 inch Harley, just need the M license endorsement, MSF course helps. Mopeds don't need M endorsement, just basic license same as car. Iowa, at age 14.5 can ride mopeds with permit after written rules of road test. 16 'derestricted' means motorcycle class and no problem. Some place have really weird laws, Britian for instance- can you imagine a place where you can't get a decent repeating varmit rifle at 18? or a place you can't get a simple self loading 9mm pistol at 21? I hear they have next to whore houses in most cities- minor advantage then, drinking beer at 16 and age of consent, some open gambling.

    Catching buses until you are 20, even then you will be paying double for insurance.

    There is no such thing as a legal derestricted moped. It is either a restricted moped or it must be registered as a 50cc motorcycle under the MSVA rules. If caught riding on a public road you would face two penalties - one fine can be up to £1,000 and 6 penalty points for riding without the proper license, and the other can cost almost $1200 ($607 for being unregistered and $530 for being uninsured). If the matter goes to court, the maximum fine is $2200 for driving unregistered and $5500 for driving uninsured.

    A moped is a 2 wheeled vehicle that has been restricted to (approx) 30mph, and if built before 1970 something it must be able to be powered by pedals. A 16 year old is only allowed to ride a moped, if it's derestricted then it's not a moped so in theory it's the same as driving a car without a licence.

    Your licence and insurance would be invalid for a derestricted moped.
