Golf Cart Registration
The Zionsville Police Department will issue registration permits for golf carts that meet the requirements. The biennial (every two years) registration fee is $50 per golf cart and must be renewed on a biennial basis. Revenue generated from these fees will be deposited into the Police Operating Fund to offset the costs of the program.
To register your golf cart, please complete the Golf Cart Registration Form below, print the form and bring it to the Municipal Action Center (MAC) at Zionsville Town Hall during business hours (Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.). You can also visit the MAC to obtain and complete the registration form. Once the form is complete, the MAC and Zionsville Police Department will issue you a permit.
For questions, please contact the MAC at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-873-5410.
