Are you required to get a special license to drive a golf cart?
We all know that golf carts are used to carry golf equipment on the golf course. Since they are not high-speed vehicles, they are still subject to licensing requirements when used in public, however, no license or regulatory requirements are required when driving a golf cart on private property, for example, on a golf course.
There are tons of people using battery operated golf carts on golf courses and none of them require special permits or licensing. In some areas, they would be considered a motor vehicle and can be used on the road in a very limited capacity with the proper permits and licensing of course. Without the proper permissions, driving your cart on public streets is illegal.
