What exactly is “street-legal”?

By state law, any non-highway vehicle that is authorized by  a local government may be operated only on streets where the posted speed limit is 35 miles per hour or less, and only if the driver has a valid driver’s license.

Additionally, street-ready golf carts must have the following:

  • brakes
  • steering
  • rear-view mirror
  • headlights
  • taillights
  • brake lights
  • turn signals
  • reflectors (front and back)
  • “slow-moving vehicle” signage (in rear)

Additional requirements may exist depending on the community in which a cart will be registered.
