This is an in-depth guide to Wyoming Golf Cart & Low-Speed Vehicle Laws. We’ve created this guide to help you, the consumer, in determining Wyoming’s laws.

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.

Guidelines for Golf Carts and PTVs (Personal Transportation Vehicles)

Wyoming Laws are not very clear on the permitting of golf carts on Public Roads. We will do our best to interpret their laws, but PLEASE reach out to your local Wyoming municipality to find a definite answer.

Golf cart” means a motor vehicle which:

  • Has not less than 3 wheels in contact with the ground
  • Has an unladen weight of less than 1,300 pounds
  • Is designed to be or is operated at not more than 15 mph
  • Is designed to carry golf equipment and not more than 4 persons including the driver
  • Is being used to transport an occupant directly to, or from or on a golf course, or is being used for special events or circumstances authorized by the city, town or county.

 

“Multipurpose vehicle” means a motor vehicle that is designed to travel on at least 4 wheels in contact with the ground, has an unladen weight of at least 300 pounds but less than 3,000 pounds, has a permanent upright seat or saddle for the driver which is mounted at least 24 inches from the ground and has an identifying number.

“Multipurpose vehicle” includes off-road recreational vehicles, electric powered vehicles, golf carts when being used other than as provided in above listed codes, is being used other than to transport an occupant directly to, or from or on a golf course, or is being used for special events or circumstances authorized by the city, town or county, and any motor vehicle meeting the criteria of this sub-paragraph and not otherwise defined in this section.

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.

 

Guidelines for LSV (Low Speed Vehicle)

Low Speed Vehicles are allowed on non-interstate highways on which the vehicle is capable of achieving the maximum speed limit. The state of Wyoming has not made their Low Speed Vehicle laws very prevalent so it is best for you to reach out to your local municipality for further information.
