MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – The city of Myrtle Beach is reminding the public of golf cart laws for public roadways.

First and foremost, you must have a driver’s license to drive on public roads, not a learner’s permit. That’s a state law, not a city of Myrtle Beach law.

“It must be a full-fledged driver’s license. Plus, the golf cart must have a permit from the SC Department of Motor Vehicles, and the cart must be insured,” the city said in a Facebook post.

Here are other state laws to keep in mind:

  • Only during daylight hours
  • Only on secondary streets where the speed limit is 35 miles per hour or less
  • Only up to four miles from the golf cart’s registered address
  • Only by a licensed driver
  • Only insured and registered golf carts
  • Not on primary roads, such as Kings Highway or U.S. 501.
  • Not on roads where the speed limit is greater than 35 miles per hour
  • Not on sidewalks or multipurpose lanes, and not in bike lanes
  • Not with more people than seats in the golf cart
