Currently, Nevada law requires only scooters with engines larger than 50cc and those capable of going faster than 30mph to be registered with the DMV.
Assembly Bill 508 introduced in the state of Nevada, would mean that all scooters, regardless of their engine size need to be registered with the DMV. The new bill would also enforce wearing helmets while riding. If the new bill passes, this would also mean that the owners of the registered vehicles would need to provide proof or insurance and pay sales taxes on their vehicles. So far, besides saving on gas costs, owning a 50cc scooter was one way to avoid additional expenses, such as registration fees, sales taxes and insurance costs.
It is not clear whether, such a bill would cause a slow down in scooter sales or not. But it is for sure, that it would raise some additional revenue for the state.
