The 2007 California Motorcycle Handbook states, on page 3, that:

If you operate a motorized bicycle which meets the definition of VC §406, you: • Must be 16 years of age or older. • Must wear a properly fitted and fastened bicycle helmet. • Are exempt from the motor vehicle financial responsibility, driver license, and moped plate requirements. (VC §12804.9)

This says to me that there are NO licensing requirements for riders or their mopeds that meet VC 406(b) definition.

I'd like to hear from other riders who have shown that handbook to a cop.
