Before you decide to purchase a pocket bike or use one that you already own, you need to be aware of the laws regulating pocket bike usage. Depending on your location, there will probably be restrictions as to where you can drive. Below you will find the pocket bike laws you need to keep in mind.
Many countries and states have banned the use of pocket bikes on public roads and streets. In some places the issue is that pocket bikes do not come with the necessary parts to make a vehicle legal, such as turn signals, horns and mirrors. This problem you can remedy by adding the necessary parts. The other part of the problem in these states is that pocket bikes usually cannot be registered or insured, making driving them illegal. In these states it is only legal to drive them on private property. Examples are Texas and California where pocket bikes are banned in all public spaces.
In addition to the laws mentioned above many states have age restrictions on pocket bike usage. The best way to find out the laws where you live is to contact the local law agency or department of motor vehicles.
