Mopeds in the state of Nevada have very specific requirements. To be classified as a moped, this vehicle:
- Must not produce more than 2 gross brake horsepower.
- Must not have an engine bigger than 50 cubic centimeters.
- Must not reach speeds greater than 30 mph on a flat surface.
A moped which meets all of these criteria does not require insurance or vehicle registration, but it must have all the proper safety equipment and you must carry a regular Class C or higher driver's license to operate in order to drive it on public streets.
Registration fees for motorcycles are assessed the same as vehicles, but you'll also pay an extra $6 fee to help fund the Nevada Rider Motorcycle Safety Program.
With rising gas costs, everyone is looking for more economical transportation. Mopeds, scooters, and motorcycles are fun and efficient options, so DMV.org has compiled an extensive list of resources to help you research these choices.
