How to Obtain a Minnesota Moped Operator’s Permit

Any person who has a valid driver’s license may operate a moped without taking a moped test. Anyone without a driver’s license, regardless of age, must obtain a moped oprator’s permit to legally operate a moped.

Step 1: Obtain a Moped Instruction Permit

To obtain a moped operator's instruction permit you must:

  • Be at least 15 years old
  • Present proper identification
  • Present a certificate of completion issued by a state approved moped safety course*
  • Pass a vision screening
  • Pass a knowledge test**

*Upon completing the AAA Minneapolis Moped Safety Class, you will receive the certificate of completion required to obtain a moped instruction permit.

**Moped knowledge tests are offered on a first-come, first-served basis at driver exam stations. To find an exam station near you, visit the locations page of the DVS website.

Step 2: 30-Day Practice Period

When you have passed the knowledge test, you will receive a 30-day moped instruction permit. This instruction permit allows you to practice riding a moped only within a one-mile radius of your residence. For operators under the age of 16, during the instruction permit period, only a parent or guardian of the operator may ride on the moped as a passenger.

Step 3: Moped Operator's Permit Skills Test

You must pass a skills test to obtain a moped operator's permit. When you take your skills test, you must bring your 30-day moped operator's instruction permit. To find an exam station near you, visit the locations page of the DVS website.
