If you have a valid driver's license and golf cart permit, you may drive the golf cart during the day within four miles of your home or business and on secondary highways.
Once the golf cart permit and registration document have been issued, you must place the permit decal on the golf cart, and carry the registration document in the golf cart at all times.
To receive a golf cart permit, you must do all of the following:
- Complete the Golf Cart Permit Registration (SCDMV Form GC-2)
- Provide proof of insurance for the golf cart
- Provide your valid driver's license number
- Pay $5
You may purchase a golf cart permit at any SCDMV branch.
You may also mail your documents and the appropriate payment, made out to the SCDMV, to the address below:
