The DMV will begin moped registration on Nov. 1 as part of a Nevada legislative measure to combat theft. Law enforcement officials will start issuing citations to unregistered mopeds on Jan. 1.
According to a statement from the DMV, the registration law passed in 2015 will make it easier for law enforcement officials to determine whether or not a moped is stolen and notify the owner of an impounded vehicle. Registration will also ensure that riders are licensed drivers.
Moped owners will have to bring their vehicles to the DMV for an inspection. In rural counties where there is no DMV office, a sheriff or deputy sheriff can complete the inspection, though the vehicle must still be registered in-person at a DMV location.
Registration fees are approximately $60, depending on the moped. No annual renewal is required. Appointments for registration are available through the DMV website.
