Something to keep in mind when registering and dealing with how, where and what you can drive.... Most times it is a matter of finding the right person. Most states do not allow the Reeper (technically speaking) or any federally registered Low Speed Vehicle to operate on roads faster than 35mph mostly due to not having a crash rating/nor airbags. With that said, each state and/or local county can adopt their own rules. My first suggestion would be to look at your state statutes and find the low speed vehicle, or neighborhood electric vehicle section. Then if there are specific rules about limiting the speed, try to get it registered under a special interest vehicle (most states have this class). Whatever you do.....do not mention the words low speed vehicle to anyone at the dmv as they either won't know what it is....or they will and you'll never get it registered as anything but that unless the law changes (and trust me that's a pain). As of now, the only two states allowing medium speed vehicle classification is Florida and Louisiana. So I know for a fact, that unless you can get it registered as a passenger vehicle, legally speaking only, you aren't supposed to go faster than 25mph on roads with a speed limit of no faster than 35mphz

The short answer is they do allow LSV's however it appears Virginia is an electric only state. You'll need to contact the administrator of licensing and permits to see if they will allow gas LSV's or if they can be registered as special interest vehicles.
