Here is all the information needed for lawful use or to lawfully modify a Golf Cart as a Low-Speed Vehicle. This information should be read in its entirety to ensure compliance. There are many Florida State Statutes that govern there use.    A couple of things to point out:

  • Anything that was manufactured as an off road vehicle (ATV, Mules etc.) are NOT allowed to be converted.
  • Low Speed Vehicle(LSV) cannot be operated on any roadway with a posted speed higher than 35MPH …  could not be operated on any paved county road in PBCE as they are posted at 40mph.
  • Must be capable of minimum speed of 20mph,  Maximum Speed Limit of LSV is 25mph
  • Can be Gas or Electric
  • MUST Possess a VALID Driver License
  • Must have completed conversion completed prior to having inspected by DHSMV
