THOMASVILLE, N.C. -- Starting Wednesday, state law requires anyone with a moped to have their vehicle registered.

The new law is part of House Bill 1145.

Anyone who owns a scooter has to register along with getting a registration card and license plate.

Being caught without tags could result in fines.

Many moped owners showed up to the license plate agency in Thomasville to register.

Because the law is so new, law enforcement is giving moped owners more time before handing out fines.

State Highway Patrol is allowing a 60-day grace period for people to get their vehicles registered.

Greensboro and Thomasville police say they'll wait 30 days before issuing tickets.
