    Mopeds & Scooters

    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.

    Not a Moped?

    Any moped, scooter, or motorcycle larger than the above specs is considered a motorcycle and requires a Class M driver's license, registration, and insurance.

    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.
