Trophy Club Off-Highway Vehicles
The Town of Trophy Club understands that the use of alternatives to traditional motor vehicles has been a long-standing practice by the community. Effective August 2016, golf carts ARE NOT required to register with the Town of Trophy Club for “in town” operation. The Town of Trophy Club does follow the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Golf Cart Regulations.
If a resident would like to drive their TxDMV approved off-highway vehicle into Roanoke, an inspection and sticker WILL BE required for your golf cart. To acquire a sticker, please schedule an appointment with our Trophy Club Police Department at 682.237.2960.
TxDMV Off-Highway Vehicles
Low-Speed Vehicles (LSVs), also known as Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEVs), and golf carts are regulated by state and federal laws. Registered, titled and insured NEVs may be legally driven at a maximum speed of 35 mph on public roads with a posted speed limit of 45 mph or less unless a city or county ordinance prohibits their operation. The TxDMV does not title or register golf carts. Golf cart owners who received a title before the law changed on September 1, 2009, are not required to return their titles to the TxDMV. For Driver License requirements to operate any of these vehicles, contact your local law enforcement agency.
A vehicle is classified as a golf cart if it:
TxDMV does not register or title golf carts.
A city can pass a local ordinance allowing for the use of golf carts on certain roads. The road must be within the boundaries of the city and have a speed limit of 35 mph or lower.
The state, a county, or a city may prohibit golf cart operation on all or part of a public road in the interest of safety.
