Motorized Golf Cart Information
As of August 3, 2020, changes have been made to the current City of Covington Golf Cart ordinance 10.18.030 (OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS) OF CHAPTER 10.18 (MOTORIZED CARTS).
It will now be required that occupants of the motorized cart use seat belts. Insurance coverage is also required in order to maintain your permit. Please see the code sections listed below.
The ordinance does not allow the driving of motorized carts on sidewalks or along specially designated streets that can be referenced by maps on file and available for inspection at the Covington Police Department or by clicking here.
On May 24, 2009 the city’s golf cart ordinance was revised to allow residents to drive golf carts around the square and into neighborhoods north of U.S. Highway 278. The city council approved the first reading of an ordinance change that would allow golf carts with permits to drive on city streets and state routes where the speed limit is 35 mph or less. A list of golf cart approved streets can be found in the Golf Cart Application link above.
