street legal

There are golf carts, and then there are street legal golf carts. Or “golf cars,” as those of us in the industry call them! Street legal golf cars are a rising trend among suburbs and neighborhoods because they can be used both privately and on public roads with a speed limit at or below 35 miles per hour.

Street legal golf cars are limited to a maximum speed of 25 mile per hour and typically can reach an average driving range of 60 miles per charge. A hybrid between a golf cart and an on-road vehicle, street legal golf cars have several required features, including:

  • Head Lamps/Stop Lamps
  • Turn Signal Lamps
  • Reflex Reflectors
  • Parking Brakes
  • Rearview Mirrors
  • Windshields
  • Seat Belts
  • Vehicle Identification Numbers

Street legal golf carts include Low Speed Vehicles (LSV) and Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEV).
