Scooters, Mopeds, Etc... in Nevada
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.
