K A asked: I just bought an electric trike. Max speed is 15 mph. I spent a lot of money on this. I do not have a drivers’ license. I ride it back and forth to work. It does have pedal assist, but I have arthritis and cannot pedal. Do I need a license for this?
If your vehicle meets the definition of bicycle in the statutes, drivers’ license and registration are not required. See these posts:

If you are using the trike only under electric power and not human power you may use the roadway but are not permitted to drive on a sidewalk. See this post:
