Even though the experience is quite delightful, riding on the road in a golf cart is not commonplace in America.

Street Legal vs Non-Street Legal Golf Carts For Sale

Many people have questions when it comes to street legal golf carts, and it can be confusing to understand why certain electric vehicles are classified as non-street legal. While we can help shed some light on the subject, we always recommend checking your local laws before purchasing a street-legal vehicle to make sure they are accepted in your area. Low Speed Vehicles (LSV’s) are built to meet the federal requirements of the Department of Transportation (DOT). They can only have speeds up to 25 mph, and must include DOT-approved upgrades such as seatbelts, windshield with wipers, headlights, taillights, and turn signals. Because the street legal models have these upgrades, they are assigned a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) so it can be registered, tagged and titled at a DMV like a car (insurance may also be required in your state). This means any person with a license can drive their street legal cart on roads with speed limits of 35 mph or less, and can cross a road of 45 mph or less. One of Bintelli’s most popular street legal golf carts for sale would be the Bintelli 4pr model. Non-street legal...

Gas vs Electric: Which Golf Cart is Right for You?

There are many things to consider when choosing which between a gas or electric golf cart, so we'll go over the basic differences and determining factors to help you decide which is best for you. Golf carts first came about in the 1930s, designed for the periodic stopping and starting required on the golf course, but they were not commonly accepted and used in the golfing community until the 1950s. Gas-powered golf carts run off a small gasoline engine and electric start setup, while electric golf carts are powered by an electric motor with a set of deep cycle batteries that come with an outlet charger. Fun fact: the first gas-powered golf cart was not invented until the late 1950s, much later than the first electric models! The real question is, how do you plan to use your golf cart? If you plan to operate your cart continuously for two hours or longer without stopping, you need a gas-powered golf cart. Electric golf carts typically reach up to 30 miles on a single charge, so you would not have enough power to last for that length of time. You can...
