Golf Cart Safety & Rules
At ECPR, we prioritize your safety, and we want you to have an enjoyable experience while driving our street legal golf carts, also known as Low Speed Vehicles(LSVs). To ensure that you have a safe trip, we kindly ask you to follow some safety basics that we have compiled for you.
First and foremost, we only allow drivers who are 21 years of age and have a valid driver’s license to drive our golf carts. Additionally, all drivers must have valid insurance for their own safety and the safety of others. Please keep this in mind when planning your trip.
When driving our LSV, please make sure to only carry the number of passengers for which you have seats and/or seatbelts. Children under the age of 3 are required to ride in a car seat, while those 4 and up must sit in their own seat with a seatbelt. It is recommended that children use a booster seat, but it’s not required. They are not allowed to ride on adults’ laps.
LSVs are not permitted on sidewalks, beaches, bike paths, grass, or over curbs. When adapting to different terrains, please use extra care and reduce speed when driving on poor conditions or surfaces, and avoid extremely rough terrain. Be aware that sudden stops or changes in direction could make you lose control of the cart. We ask that you refrain from off-road or reckless driving as sand can damage the cart’s motor.
While driving, please obey and follow all traffic rules, stick to posted public roads with a speed limit of 35 mph or less and avoid using the golf cart on Emerald Coast Parkway (Highway 98). Ensure that the direction selector (forward/reverse) is in the correct position before accelerating. Always bring the cart to a full stop before shifting the direction selector and slow down before and during turns. It is also important to check behind you before operating the cart in reverse, and always yield to pedestrians. Pets are not allowed in the golf cart.
Use headlights at night to improve visibility. Avoid placing chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc. on the roof of the cart as it may obstruct the driver’s view and potentially fall off. LSVs can be parked in any spot a car would park, but be mindful of where you park the cart as any parking tickets or citations will be billed to the primary driver. When not in use, please keep the cart plugged in to ensure it is fully charged for your next use.
Using your cellphone while driving the LSV is prohibited. It’s also important to note that drinking alcohol while operating the golf cart or use of drugs is strictly prohibited. We kindly ask that you keep in mind that you can receive a DUI for driving under the influence or having open containers. Your safety and the safety of those around you is our top priority, so please be sure to follow these guidelines.
In the event of an accident, contact 911 immediately. Once it is safe and secure, contact your primary insurance company as soon as possible to report a claim. Any damage to the cart must be immediately reported to ECPR as well. As the renter, you are responsible for any and all damages that occur while the cart is in your possession.
We want you to have a fun and safe experience while driving our carts, and following these safety basics will help ensure that. Your safety is our top priority, and we are always here to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

Frequently asked questions
LSV stands for Low-Speed Vehicle (street-legal golf cart).
LSVs, or Low-Speed Vehicles, comply with Florida State DMV regulations and are equipped with additional safety features such as seatbelts, headlights, brake, turn signals, reflex reflectors, and side mirrors. These features allow LSVs to be fully street legal and operate on public roads with speed limits of 35mph or less. LSVs are also required to carry registration and license plates. In contrast, golf carts that are not LSVs, are not street legal and are only permitted to operate on private roads within private communities. These golf carts often lack the necessary safety features required for street-legal operation.
Certainly, all the golf carts available for rent at Emerald Coast Premier Rentals are LSVs, which implies that they are all street legal and can be legally driven on public roads.
All our golf carts are fully electric and can be charged by plugging them into any standard outlet. To make it even more convenient, we provide a 50-foot extension cord along with all rentals.
You can park it wherever a regular car is allowed to park. While some shops, restaurants and beach accesses have designated parking spots for golf carts, if they’re all taken, you can park in a regular car space.
You can differentiate between a public and private road by looking at the color of the street sign. If the street sign is green, it indicates that it’s a county-maintained road, which is a public road. However, if the street sign is blue, it suggests that it’s a private road.
Parking your golf cart outside in the rain should not cause any damage to it, and you can rinse it off with a water hose if needed. To avoid any issues, it’s best to avoid driving the cart in rainy conditions.
You don’t have to clean the cart before it’s picked up as we’ll handle that for you. However, please ensure to take out any personal items and debris from the cart beforehand.
We accept all major credit cards (American Express, VISA, MasterCard, Discover). No checks.
