Bicycle Laws Minnesota
of EV Bicycle Law MN
To legally operate a motorized bicycle or electric-assisted bicycle
the operator must be licensed, the motorized bicycle/electric-assisted
bicycle must be registered in one of the following definitions and meet
the required safety equipment. If the operator or the motorized
bicycle/electric- assisted bicycle does not meet all requirements, they
will not be legal for street/highway use (including the sidewalk).To
qualify as a motorized bicycle under state law they need to
have motor of a piston displacement capacity of 50 cubic centimeters or
less, maximum of two brake horsepower, maximum speed of not more than
30 mph (50 km/h) on a flat surface, fully operable pedals for human
propulsion are not required, but may be a part of the machine.
To qualify as an electric-assisted bicycle under state law
they need to have a seat and fully operable pedals for human
propulsion, meet federal motor vehicle safety standards, an electric
motor that has a power output of not more than 1,000 watts, maximum
speed of not more than 20 mph (electric motor and human power
combined), disengages or ceases to function when the vehicle's brakes
are applied, two or three wheels
To operate a motorized/electric-assisted bicycle on the streets or
highways a person musthave a valid driver's license or a motorized
bicycle permit. A person under the age of 16 operating a
motorized/electric-assisted bicycle under a motorized bicycle permit is
subject to restrictions of no passengers (a parent or guardian my ride
if the motorized/electric assisted bicycle is equipped with a seat and
footrests for a passenger), no night driving, driving on any highway
marked as an interstate, must wear a helmet, foot rests for passengers
(if designed for passenger(s). A motorized bicycle permit is available
to persons of at least 15 years of age who have passed the motorized
bicycle test or passed a motorized bicycle course. A motorized bicycle
would need the same coverage as a motorcycle would in this state. An
electric-assisted bicycle would not need coverage.
Operators are subject to driving rules and equipment requirements
(if applicable) when operated on the public streets or highways (which
includes the main traveled portion of the road, shoulder and sidewalk).
This means that an operator could be cited for speeding, failure to
signal, unsafe change of course, driving on the sidewalk, DWI (this
would apply to anywhere in the state and not just the
streets/highways), and all other driving rules contained within state
law that would apply. They may also not ride more than two abreast and
may not impede the normal and reasonable movement of traffic. On a
laned roadway, they must operate within a single lane.
