I'm merely quoting the law. I've found nowhere in the FL statute that has provisions for turning a golf cart into an LSV here in FL. A particular county might, and that is covered in the section I referenced. Statewide is another thing.

Rather than being a smartass, just post a link to the relavent law if it's a statewide thing.

160 posts, and you're the old man here, LOL!

Registration with DMV only requires filling out one simple form and mailing it in to the DMV.
That is GREAT! I live in a golf cart friendly development but it technically is limited to the golf courses and the elementary school. The sheriff turnS a blind eye when it comes to the shopping centers and restaurants that are within the area. It would be nice to have it be official!

Okay, spent an hour digging through the FL statutes. LSV and golf carts are clearly defined. One ain't the other. Nothing is mentioned about conversions.

However, the Florida Motor Vehicle Mobile Home and Recreational Vehicle Dealer's Handbook DOES talk about conversions.

Reference: www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/DealerHandbook.pdf Page 64

F. LOW SPEED VEHICLES

<SNIPPED SECTION OMITTED>

"Used and new golf carts that are converted as golf cars with a maximum speed greater than 20 mph, but not greater than 25 mph will be titled as assembled from parts (ASPT).

Dealers who sell used golf cars or golf carts converted into LSVís must be licensed as independent dealers.

A golf cart that is converted to a low speed vehicle conforms to title 49 CFR part 571.500 and section 316-2126, Florida Statutes, and must have the following:

Headlamps; Stop lamps; Tail lamps; Front and rear turn signal lamps; Windshield with an ASI or AS5 composition; Type 1 or type 2 seat belt assembly conforming to Section 571.209 of this part, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 209, seat belt assemblies at each designated seating position; An exterior mirror on the driverís side of the vehicle and either an exterior mirror mounted on the passengerís side of the vehicle or an interior mirror; Parking brakes; Reflex reflectors: one red on each side as far to the rear as practicable, and one red on the rear; Windshield cleaning device pursuant to, section 316.2952 (3) (4), Florida Statutes; Horn pursuant to section 316.271 (1), Florida Statutes; Slow Moving Vehicle Emblem (SMV) pursuant to section 316.225 (7) (a) (b) Florida Statutes; and Illuminated rear license plate bracket."


So it can be done legally statewide, provided you follow the extensive requirements. Shame this isn't mentioned in the Statutes...

Wow, that was a lot of work!

I was going to simply post a photo of a golf cart, with a Florida license plate, and the word "Florida" circled in red...

But then I realized that:
1. That doesn't help the original poster of this thread, and his question, in the least.
b. It would violate my suggestion of "read more, post less"
iii. It would run up my post count

The key detail here is you can't make a golf cart street legal but you can convert is to an LSV, which is street legal. Once it's converted, it's no longer defined as a golf cart per the fl statutes.
