Moped Directions & FAQs

Rental Regulations & FAQs

  • You must be 18 to rent a moped and you need a valid driver's license.  If you are under 18 and hold a valid driver's license, you may rent a moped with a parent's signature.
  • You must wear helmets and eye protection. This is a town ordinance and failure to comply may result in a ticket.
  • Block Island (Town of New Shoreham) restricts the use of mopeds on dirt or unpaved roads.
  • For the safety of yourself and your child,  most rental companies do not allow pregnant women to rent or ride their mopeds.

Note: Block Island does not have a hospital so if you wipe out and are seriously injured you have to be life-flighted to the mainland.  We have limited resources and our fire and rescue department is voluntary so be careful, ride safely, and stay off all dirt roads.
