is it legal to drive a 150cc powered go kart on the road without a license

Here you go:

From Ed:

NO, unless you live in Az. Jk..They even have a few rules here. A street legal go kart and you with a license, yes in Az.

From Mark:

It would be illegal to ride any unregistered vehicle such as a go cart anywhere on a public road if the vehicle is unregistered and the driver is unlicensed. Vehicles on public roads must be street legal, currently registered with the dept. of motor vehicles, and the driver must have a valid driver’s license. Now if it’s a road on private property and you have permission to ride there, go for it!

    Hi I’m from Montreal Canada and I have a go kart and I was wondering I it would be legal to drive it in a (walkmart, Canadian tire) parking lot after the stores have closed… would I still be stopped? And would it be illigal to do so?

    Is it still illegal to drive on let’s say dirt on the side of a public roadway

    Hi,I’m from Chicago and I was wondering if I could ride my go kart in a parking lot two blocks from my house?

    Funny as go karts are low speeds and would actually be safer then cars. Go karts should be more encouraged.

  13. SortingHat says:

    If anything there should actually be a go kart license that’s aimed at kids or young teens so they can learn rider safety if the department absolutely feels go karts have to be regulated to drive. Then parents have a new option to explore for their kids.

  15. admin says:

    Depends on the city and state, most are not street legal unless the street is private property
