In New York, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) does not recognize e-bikes as vehicles that require registration and licensing. Therefore, e-bikes are not considered motorized vehicles in the same way that cars or motorcycles are. This means that e-bike riders do not need to obtain a traditional motor vehicle license or register their e-bikes with the DMV. However, e-bike riders are still subject to specific regulations and rules related to e-bike usage in the state, including adhering to class-specific requirements and safety guidelines.
