• DOT approved windshield & wiper

• 3-pt seatbelts

• side & rear reflectors

• slow-moving vehicle triangle

Fully Street Legal

  • 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 vehicle 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.

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).
