What is an LSV? An LSV is a Low-Speed Vehicle. In other words, it is a street legal cart, utility, or transportation vehicle.

Any cart that is classified as an LSV—sometimes referred to as an NEV—is street legal. It can be driven on any road with a posted speed limit of 35 mph or less and can go no faster than 25 mph. They must be capable of reaching a speed of 20 mph within 1 mile, have a 17 digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), weigh less than 3,000 pounds, and have 4 wheels. These vehicles must be certified to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and require a valid license, registration, and insurance. They are equipped with a wide range of safety features including: seatbelts, an AS-1 or AS-5 glazed safety glass, a front windshield wiper, a horn, headlights, taillights, front and rear turn signals, brake lights, side and rear reflectors, a side and rear-view mirror, a parking brake, 4 wheel brakes and road rated tires.

Can any cart be made into an LSV? No. Normal carts are simply not built to be driven on public roads. Even if you modify one to go a decent speed, it will not have the safety features or stopping distance to be anywhere near safe. You can NOT register a golf cart with the DMV, and anyone that tries to tell you otherwise is wrong. There is no way to make a golf cart street legal because there is no way to make driving a golf cart on the street safe.
