ISP: Golf Carts Can Be Registered At BMV

Last updated on Wednesday, August 27, 2008

(UNDATED) - In an unusual turn of events in the debate over golf carts on public roadways, Indiana State Police say there may be a way to drive them currently.

A release by the Indiana State Police say there is nothing in the Indiana Code prohibiting golf carts from being registered at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, contrary to what was previously thought.

The Indiana Code says golf carts, being self-propelled, are technically defined as motor vehicles and under the jurisdiction of the BMV.

If a golf cart has all the proper safety and signal equipment of any other motor vehicle, the Indiana State Police say the BMV can register it and issue tags, but they won't register it if it doesn't meet requirements.
