Golf Cart Laws

Golf carts must display valid SC Department of Motor Vehicles and Town of Pawleys Island stickers. The Town of Pawleys Island sticker can be obtained at Town Hall by completing the Town’s golf cart permit application and paying the annual $10 fee. You will be required to verify your SC Golf Cart Registration (obtained at the SCDMV) and proof of insurance, and sign that you have reviewed the golf cart rules, which can be found here:



The address on the registration must be within 2 miles of the town limits located on the North or South Causeway. The driver of a golf cart must be at least 16 years old and be in possession of a driver’s license, the SCDMV registration certificate, and proof of liability insurance. Golf carts may not be operated at night. Golf carts cannot be driven in the rain or at any other time that visibility is limited. All drivers of golf carts are required to read the Town of Pawleys Island laws related to golf carts. The golf cart laws can be found in the Town’s Ordinances, which are on this Website.
