We will be moving to AC in the next few months and are wondering about bringing a golf cart with us. Shipping costs aside, can anyone advise on the procedure (and cost)to "register" a golf cart. I noticed license plates and some sort of sticker on the ones we rented last week.
Thanks for any help!

don't take it until you have a permit

Ditto: ... if you bring a cart, it won't be allowed on the island unless you have a vehicle importation permit issued by the San Pedro Town Board. I was at the traffic department this morning to check on the status of a golf cart permit for my brother-in-law. The application was denied because he does not hold a Belizean drivers license. That was not a requirement when we got our permit, but things change quickly.

Bottom line, I wouldn't bring a cart down unless you are prepared to store it somewhere on the mainland while you wait for the required permit to bring it to the island.

No permits are needed for the Placencia penninsula or any other area on the Belize mainland.

Issuance of golf cart permits can be expedited through select rental agencies.

I wanted this info too. Does one need a driver's licence on AC to operate a golf cart? As it appears they are plated, insured etc. must the driver be licenced as well or shall I just pack the pups and a dogsled (northern joke)...

IIRC, you must produce your driver's licence to rent a cart and it is recommended that you carry it with you while you are driving, on the off chance that the police ask you to produce it.
