Ocala sets registration requirements for golf carts in downtown area

The City of Ocala will allow the use of golf carts, low-speed vehicles and mini trucks on designated city streets beginning Monday, June 1.

Those planning to operate golf carts or low speed vehicles within the downtown area are required to register for a one-time permit at a cost of $30. This registration fee will be used to provide information to law enforcement with ownership information in the event of an accident or theft. A decal will be assigned and must be displayed on the left side of the vehicle.

  • Residents who want to submit their form electronically may send it to [email protected] and pay by credit card via the online payment service. Once complete, an invoice from Paystand will be emailed to you.
