Is this state Medium Speed Vehicle friendly? No State Law is Currently in Place.

Is License and Registration a Requirement? If being used as a Multipurpose Vehicle, yes.

General Federal Law for Golf Carts:

Under current NHTSA interpretations and regulations, so long as golf cars and other similar vehicles are incapable of exceeding 20 miles per hour, they are subject to only state and local requirements regarding safety equipment. However, if these vehicles are originally manufactured so that they can go faster than 20 miles per hour, they are treated as motor vehicles under Federal law.

The standard requires low-speed vehicles to be equipped with headlamps, stop lamps, turn signal lamps, taillamps, reflex reflectors, parking brakes, rearview mirrors, windshields, seat belts, and vehicle identification numbers.

If a person is operating a golf cart solely to and from a golf course pursuant to above codes, they are not required to have a Drivers’ License. However, if the golf cart is registered as an MPV, the driver will have to have a valid Drivers’ License even if operating it to and from a golf course. It is known one or more municipalities in Wyoming permit the use of golf cars on their public streets.
