Canada's Leading LSV Manufacturer

Street Legal

SC Carts is the leading manufacturer of street legal LSVs in Canada, offering fully roadworthy vehicles designed for urban travel. With a strong focus on quality and safety, we provide Canadians with stylish and compliant transportation options

  • What is an LSV?
    An LSV (Low-Speed Vehicle) is a class of small, lightweight electric vehicles that was originally introduced to meet the short distance transportation needs of residents in gated communities. LSVs have 4 wheels and drive at a maximum speed of between 32 km/h and 40 km/h.
  • Are LSV's really street legal?
    Yes! If you opt for the LSV upgrade on your vehicle, this will make your build street legal! We equip everything required by Transport Canada to ensure you are completely legal and safe on roads with a speed limit of 50km and under.
  • Do I need a driver's license to drive an LSV?
    Yes. Our street legal LSVs are fully road-worthy vehicles, and a valid driver's license is required to drive them on public roads with a speed limit of 50km/h and under.
  • How do I insure my LSV for street use?
    ICBC and other provincial insurance companies recognize our street legal vehicles as LSVs (low-speed vehicles). When issuing your LSV, it is important to specify this category. For pleasure purposes it is a class 001 and for business it is a class 007. Please avoid using the term "golf cart" when describing your vehicle, as golf carts cannot be insured in most jurisdictions and may confuse the process.

Golf Carts vs LSVs

When it comes to choosing between a standard golf cart and a Low-Speed Vehicle (LSV), it's essential to understand the key distinctions that set them apart. At SC Carts, we take pride in being the sole manufacturer in Canada capable of producing street-legal LSV golf carts, offering you unparalleled quality and compliance with road regulations.


Golf Carts: Standard golf carts are primarily designed for use on golf courses and in specific environments like gated communities or resorts. These carts are optimized for short-distance travel on private roads or designated pathways. Standard golf carts are typically not equipped with the necessary safety features for public road use, limiting their operational scope to non-public areas.


Low-Speed Vehicles (LSVs): LSVs elevate the concept of the golf cart to a whole new level. An LSV, including our street-legal golf carts, is fully road legal, meeting or exceeding regulatory requirements for operation on public streets. Unlike standard golf carts, LSVs are licensed and insured, ensuring they are equipped with essential safety features such as seat belts, turn signals, mirrors, and headlights. This makes them suitable for navigating roads with speed limits of up to 50 km/h, offering a broader range of use beyond the golf course, including urban commuting and community transportation.


SC Carts stands at the forefront of this innovative transition, providing you with the opportunity to own a vehicle that combines the leisurely charm of a golf cart with the practical compliance of a road-worthy LSV. By choosing an LSV from SC Carts, you're not just selecting a vehicle; you're embracing a lifestyle of convenience, sustainability, and legal compliance, all while enjoying the freedom to travel both on and off the golf course.

Important Note

When insuring your street legal LSV, please refrain from referring to your vehicle as a "golf cart." While we can upgrade any vehicle in our lineup to be street legal, including ones designed for golf, LSVs are not golf carts. Golf carts are not insurable in Canada. To ensure a smooth process insuring your vehicle, please be sure to refer to it as an LSV (low-speed vehicle).
