Golf cart permits are available at any SCDMV branch office. The permit allows a licensed driver to operate a golf cart during daylight hours on a secondary highway or street within four miles of his residence or place of business.
To obtain a golf cart permit, you must:
· Complete Form GC-2, Golf Cart Permit Registration
· Provide proof of insurance for the golf cart
· Provide a valid driver license number for the operator
· Submit a fee of $5.00
A golf cart permit must be replaced with a new permit every five years or at the time the permit holder changes his or her address. Golf cart owners holding golf cart permits on or before October 1, 2012 will have until September 30, 2015 to obtain a replacement permit.
