Tax Title, & License (TT&L)
Buying a new scooter from cccc gives you the ability to have an easy-to-drive mode of transportation anywhere the roads may take you. However, in order to drive it on city or county roads, you’re going to have to register it with your local DMV first. We receive a lot of questions about this process – however, the reality is that registration processes are unique for each US State and may vary depending on the county you live. Noted below is a generic instruction guideline that will show you the basics about registering your scooter in the municipality you live.
- Contact Us to Receive MCO: Once you receive your scooter the first thing you should do is to contact Variety Powersports so we can complete the Manufactured Certificate of Origin (MCO). In order to accomplish this, we’ll need you to provide the VIN number, which is a 17-digit number that will be noted on the actual scooter and perhaps on the documentation in your order form. Once we have the VIN and your contact information, you’ll receive the MCO and Bill of Sale, which you’ll need in order to register the scooter with your DMV.
- Get Insurance for your Scooter: After you receive your MCO and Bill of Sale, you’ll need to contact an insurance company to activate a policy for your scooter for on road driving. Virtually all DMVs require you to show proof of insurance in order to register any motor vehicle in the state. Most scooter insurance policies are rather inexpensive, ranging from $50 to $100 per year.
- Set up a Vehicle Inspection: As we indicated above, each US State has different requirements for registering a vehicle for on road use. Most states require that any vehicle pass a safety inspection, completed by an authorized location. Contact your local DMV to determine which facility is acceptable to inspect your scooter (if needed), before trying to register the scooter.
After you’ve completed all of the required items to gain all the documentation you need to register the scooter with your local DMV, complete the process with your DMV office. They will provide you with all the required documentation, license plate, registration paper work and title (if applicable) once you visit the DMV.
