Golf Cart Registration

Starting on January 1, 2020, the Zionsville golf cart ordinance will go into effect. The ordinance allows the legal use of golf carts by those with a valid operator’s permit on select approved streets within the urban district of Zionsville.

Registration

Starting Jan. 2, 2020, the Zionsville Police Department will issue registration permits for golf carts that meet the requirements. The annual registration fee is $100 per golf cart and must be renewed on an annual basis.

Revenue generated from these fees will be deposited into the Police Operating Fund to offset the costs of the program.
