From what I gather, you need to have it inspected at the DMV, get issued a reistration and a tag. It must have operating turn signals, headlight, and brake light.
You also need a DL. My DL is suspended for a few unpaid tickets, and the fines are too much too get taken care of for me right now. The vops told me I could be arrested for driving on a suspended license.
Seriously, this is just wrong. As soon as something gains a bit of popularity, big gubment comes in and finds all the ways to suck as much revenue from it as they can.
I just got the bike setup real nice, and now I have to try and sell it and hope I get enough for a used electric bike.
