Allstate does write LSV insurance in Florida now and are much cheaper then State Farm. Cart Boat Racer knows Gary Mc so he'll get a kick out of this... just a couple of months ago I wanted to drop State Farm since their rates went through the roof... so I called Gary Mc agency and they still insisted that they cannot write LSV insurance. I called the agent in Leesburg and got the policy though his Allstate agency. A couple days later Gary Mc agency called me back, saw that I got it through another Allstate agent, checked with the main office and said... Opps... "I guess we CAN write LSV insurance". Moral of the story... if your Allstate agent says you can't... don't believe them The agency in Leesburg is Whittington Ins, (352) 315-1364.

Oh also for anyone in the process of doing this, they recently updated the forms required so be sure you are using the most up to date copy or they will not accept it. I had to re-do my builders statement and the application for title with/without registration.

Hello Everyone! Newbie hear to the GC world and this forum... Well relatively new... Now that im almost finished with my CC project "with lots of useful info from this forum", Im starting the process to get it street legal. My question is does anyone know a contact in Hillborough Co FL to get my inspection done. Everwhere I call seems to be clueless! I tried DOT DMV and HSMV here locally. Any help would be gladly appreciated.

The inspections are done at regional DMV offices. You are within the same region as I am so you will have to tow your cart down to the Palmetto office(be thankful you are close, I had to go UP from Naples). It is the same place that people have to bring rebuilt cars to get salvage titles.

(941) 723-4551

Ask to speak with Tim Tobin. He was a bit difficult to deal with over the phone because this was all new to him but once I got up there with my cart everything was a breeze. Didn't have to take it off the trailer and he barely even checked to see that I had all the required parts. Keeping track of your receipts is the most important thing. The whole process seemed horrible the first time I went through it but now that I'm finished, looking back, it wasn't too bad.

Oh and for anyone that doesn't know this, there are a lot of fees involved. The $40 inspection fee is just the beginning. After that you pay about $80 for the title and another $300 for a first time registration. With a custom license plate I paid about $500 in fees just to make this **** thing legal.

Best of luck with getting your cart legal! Any more questions feel free to ask!

that sucks that they issue a full size tag. a motorcycle sized tag seems more appropriate...

Yea a motorcycle tag would be awesome but the normal tag's not too bad...it's only a little bit wider than the rear loop handle.

But I ain't got no rear loop handle. I wonder if you could request the motor cycle sized tag.

Nope, motorcycle tags are only for vehicles designated as motorcycles. Golf carts, converted for street use, are considered ASsembled from ParTs (ASPT: essentially, home made) Low Speed Vehicles and that falls under a classification of electric car basically. Cars get big tags. :-(

You could always get two small "L" brackets and screw it to the underside of your rear seat, or if you are lifted high enough screw it right into the rear foot step.

maybe if you did a wheelie for the inspector they might confuse your cart for a motorcycle and you issue you a smaller tag.

who do we petition for proportionally sized license plate reform?
