A term, commonly used in vehicle registration and financial responsibility statutes, that is generally defined to mean a device capable of transporting people or property and is self-propelled by mechanical or electrical power.

However, state “motor vehicle” definitions usually contain a list of exceptions of the kinds of vehicles that do not qualify—for example, vehicles that are not designed for use on public roads, vehicles propelled solely by human power, bicycles, motorized wheelchairs or other electric personal assistive mobility devices, farm tractors, implements of husbandry, motorized bicycles, mopeds, snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, motor scooters, and vehicles running only upon rails or tracks, etc.
