Bicycle Licenses

All bikes on the UC Davis campus must have a current California Bicycle License.

General Information & Cost: 

  • NEW LICENSE - $12
  • RENEWAL - $6
  • Licenses and renewals are both valid until December 31st of the second year following the year of registration.
  • Bike must be present for new registrations

Hours & Locations:

2017 Welcome Week Schedule:

Most new students register their bikes during Welcome Week, which results in extremely long wait lines.  This year, in efforts to reduce these wait times, students have the option to pre-register their bikes during dorm move-in (see locations and schedule below) or at TAPS during Welcome Week.  TAPS will complete a bike registration form and students can return to the TAPS office from 10/9-10/27 (when wait times are minimal) to pay the registration fee and obtain their bike license.  Although a valid bicycle license is required on campus, the UCD Campus Police Department will not issue citations for registration violations until after October 31, 2017.
