Each state has requirements for motorcycle insurance coverage. North Carolina has specific requirements and components of motorcycle insurance for the state. Brevard, NC as well as the rest of the state requires the purchase of liability insurance by motorcycle owners. This includes owners of motor scooters. Proof of this insurance is required by carrying a valid insurance card with you.
The state also has a "Miscellaneous type vehicle endorsement". This means that it can be attached to your personal auto insurance. Using this endorsement then extends to cover your motorcycle as well
