Bicycle Basics and Licenses
Why should I register my bicycle with the City of Chesapeake?
If your bicycle is ever stolen and then found, the police can trace its serial number and return the bike to you. A license for your bicycle costs only $1.00 and it lasts for as long as you own your bicycle.
Do I have to have a bicycle license?
You may purchase a bicycle license on a voluntary basis; it is not mandatory to have a bicycle decal. Print a Bicycle License Form.
Who should I call if my bicycle is missing?
The Chesapeake Police Department will assist you if your bicycle is stolen. Call their non-emergency line at 757-382-6161.
Where can I register my bicycle?
Visit any of the Treasurer's Office locations or fill out the bicycle license form and mail it to the Treasurer.
