If one of the requirements is not met, the cart will fail the inspection and no permit will be issued. Every golf cart owner must present a valid driver's license, proof of insurance, and have all of the required equipment upgrades. There will be no exceptions.

Please review the Golf Cart Registration and Inspection Form below. Officers will fill out the form. If all requirements are met, the golf cart will  pass inspection. A fee of $50.00 will be collected by the City Clerk's Office (cash, check or credit card), and two permit decals will be issued to the golf cart owner. Permits will be valid for three years, but the $50 fee is due annually.

Please take into consideration that the operation of a golf cart on designated cart streets is a privilege. Greenville Police Department and the City of Greenville reserve the right to revoke or deny any golf cart registration which is deemed necessary. Stay safe and follow the traffic laws.
