What defines a Street Legal Golf Car?

So what is the definition of  a street legal golf car, exactly? And how does a street legal golf car differ from your regular golf car? Street legal golf cars include several built-in safety features added to make it suitable for use on low speed residential streets, such as those within your neighborhood or even on some public highways. In order to qualify as “street legal,” your golf car must adhere to Florida’s laws. These rules apply to Low-Speed Vehicles (LSV’s) and Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEV’s).

What are the Florida Laws for a Street Legal Golf Car?

Everyone must keep in mind that the laws for street legal golf cars or street legal golf cars can vary from state-to-state. Whether you’re a Florida resident or a tourist, you must abide by the laws and regulations established by the state in which the street legal golf car is used. You will know if your golf car qualifies as a street legal vehicle or is suited for street use if it meets the definition below.

Street legal vehicles are defined by Florida Statute 320.01(42) as “any four-wheeled electric vehicles whose top speed is greater than 20 miles per hour but not greater than 25 miles per hour.” This includes Low Speed Vehicles such as Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEV). Golf cars that are not considered low speed vehicles are prohibited from operation on roads with a few exceptions detailed in s. 316.212. As with motor vehicles, low speed vehicles are subject to a license tax, which is the same as that prescribed in Florida Statute s. 320.08- for non-electrically powered vehicles.

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:

Requirements for a Street Legal golf car in Florida include:

      • Head Lamps/Stop Lamps
      • Turn Signal Lamps
      • Tail Lamps
      • Reflex Reflectors
      • Parking Brakes
      • Rear-view Mirrors
      • Windshields
      • Seat Belts
      • Vehicle Identification numbers

Florida NEV’s and low speed vehicles are prohibited from operation on roads with posted speed limits above 35 miles per hour however they are allowed to cross major roads that have higher speed limits. That being said, a county or municipality can prohibit the use of street legal golf cars or LSV’s on any road in its jurisdiction, as is the Department of Transportation. Always be sure to check with your local laws and community for specific information about their policies. Laws for street legal vehicles vary by state and county, but Prime Golf Cars can help you find the right golf car to accommodate your particular needs.
