Here's some of what I've found:
Basically what the state is doing is registering it as an ?Assembled from Parts? NEV.

1. Cart must be electric.
2. Must be capable of minimum 20 MPH with a maximum of 25 MPH.
3. Must have LEXAN windshield.
4. Windshield wiper (electric or hand operated).
5. Seat belts.
6. Rear view mirror (outside left) and either one center inside or one right side.
7. Red reflector on rear and each side as close to the rear as possible. (At least 24 inches from ground).
8. Headlights
9. Taillights
10. Brake lights.
11. Turn signals.
12. Horn.

Keep all receipts for your upgrades. You will need a receipt (Bill of Sale) for the cart plus a Certificate of Manufacture. You will also need a weight slip. (Load cart on trailer and drag it to a state weigh station. They will weigh it and give you a slip of paper.) With all of this you?ll need to go to the DMV and fill out some forms. You leave all the paper work. They will then make an appointment for you to bring the cart in for inspection. After the inspection, they collect any taxes that are due. They will issue a title. Drag the cart home. Call your insurance company to get insurance. Be sure they understand that it is a Low Speed Vehicle and will be operated on public streets. My company would not insure it so I called an agent with Progressive. Full insurance on a 2006 Ez-Go was $255 per year.

With the title and insurance card go to the county courthouse for the tag.
you forgot the illuminated license plate holder with a white light visible from 50 feet
SMV Emblem - Slow Moving Vehicle
Certified Weight Slip

Other than that fill out buyer and seller info, and have the bill of sale with sellers full name, address, and description of cart with year, color and the amount paid. Theyre sticklers on this ! Youll need a weight slip from certified scale. Record the date you completed your build because the new title reflects that date as the vehicles new year (for example my 91 club car is now a 2009 ASPT LSV)... You wont need to prove insurance till you go to the DMV for your tag. Mike PS. Dont forget the Slow moving vehicle sign on the back, they check these also !
I dont know if its different in Miami but the tag agency said Low speed Vehicle a.k.a golf carts do not require insurance because since they cannot exceed 25 MPH its not required she didn't ask me for it so I asked her if I had to prove I had insurance I had it anyways and paid $203 with Progressive I added extra $$$ for the added extras radio,rims,etc... I had to send them the reciets so incase it gets stolen I get full replacement for everything not just the cart worth the extra $$$

About 10 pieces of paper to fill out basic stuff took about 30 minutes
Went to DMV to make sure all papers were in order receits,bill of sale,etc... before I dragged cart over there lady said they were she checked everything and it was great 2 days later took cart she inspected ($40.00) all of 2 minutes never took it off trailer then it took her 5 minutes to put the VIN sticker finally placed on metal chasis and to my surprise she placed it upsidedown hahaha
yes she did she was nervous
Next went to tag agency this is when it gets expensive paid taxes on bill of sale $4000 bill of sale minus a Zero so I paid $400.00 for cart
Taxes,New Title Fee,New Custom Tag (need to wait 2 months to get it so she gave me a firefighter one in the mean time since thats what I ordered ) and that came out to be $312 and thats about it
All I have to say is that its time consuming more than anything but well worth it in my opinion
Then I came home and took everything off
What about your insurance... who did you go with and what did you show the DMV?

Is it insured as a Car or as a Golf Cart with Progressive? Does your insurance show Off Road Vehicle Policy or does it show as a Motor Vehicle with Comp, PIP and Collision? I also believe your DMV gave you wrong information. Since it's classified as a Motor Vehicle it does require insurance. I also know that a Moped which operates at speeds under 25 MPH doesn't have to have PIP. Maybe that's where the mixup was. They are not perfect and I even know of one individual here on BGW that has a Gasser, took it to the DMV and got it registered as an LSV. My DMV in Palm Beach County DID require insurance for my LSV.



Here are some more facts about LSV's...

FLORIDA Florida allows LSVs to be operated on streets where the posted speed limit is 35 mph or less. LSVs are subject to the same license tax, registration, insurance and drivers license requirements as other vehicles. Counties, municipalities and the state Department of Transportation may prohibit LSVs on roads under their respective jurisdictions if such prohibition is necessary in the interest of public safety. Florida statute also imposes certain restrictions on the imposition of insurance surcharges on EVs.

The operation of LSV on public roads is governed by Florida Statute 316.2122. Notably, the roadway need not be designated for use of LSV. Rather, the only requirement is that the posted speed limit is less than 35 m.p.h. Further, the operator of a LSV must have a valid drivers’ license, and the vehicle must be registered and insured in accordance with 320.02, Florida Statutes. The failure of an agent to procure insurance for a LSV after being advised there was one in the household may be an additional area for potential liability when examining all potential issues in a personal injury lawsuit.

Its classified as a motor vehicle and yes I have Comp,PIP, and collision wife is an insurance speacialist so she took care of it all she is allways over insuring everything house insurance,life insurance, jewlery insurance, etc...
She always has to have extra coverage which for me means more $$$$
At the DMV and the Tag Agency nobody asked me for insurance even thought I had it so it wouldnt have been a problem the Tag Agency had to call The State DMV to ask questions and get this done for me they were clueless how to do this I was the first to do this at the Tag Agency I went to in Miami ,Florida 33014

DMV Clueless... sounds familiar

When I first got my tag, they accepted my Golf Cart Policy, not knowing that it wasn't full coverage. But when I had to renew my tag that's when things changed... they required for me to show FULL coverage. Good to know that Progressive is insuring LSV's as well. When I got started there was just State Farm, then Allstate. More is better

Snoop911, If you do not mind my asking what insurance company do you have? I am having a very hard time finding affordable insurance for my LSV. The quotes are running $995 to $1400 for the year. That is only $40 cheaper then what I am paying for my Tundra. I am getting frustrated.
