Motorcycle and Mopeds
All mopeds operated on Virginia roadways must be titled and registered with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles. Moped drivers must also carry a government-issued Photo ID, wear a helmet, and wear a face shield, safety glasses or goggles (unless the moped has a windshield). Visit www.dmvnow.com for more information.
All mopeds are required to have a valid UVA Moped Parking Permit to park in designated motorcycle and moped parking spaces on grounds. Students wishing to register a motorcycle should visit the Motorcycle Parking Information section.
University policy prohibits undergraduate first-year students from having vehicles on-Grounds during their first-year (fall & spring semesters). The policy governing use of vehicles by first-year students can be found in the Undergraduate Record (http://records.ureg.virginia.edu/). Students should contact John Cheney, Assistant Dean of Students, at email@example.com if they wish to request a first-year parking exception. First-year parking exceptions are only granted in extraordinary circumstances.
Students should include the following information in their email to Dean Cheney: their name, where they live on-Grounds, the reason for the request, and the length of time for the request (full academic year or for a certain period of time). First-year student athletes with regular practices away from Grounds should notify their coaches, and the Athletic Department will contact Dean Cheney.
