You must be a minimum of 14 years old to drive a cart. A driver's license is not required.

The only regulation in TV is on the rental carts at the country clubs. There, you must be at least 16 with a driver's license. Other than that, Florida statute applies.

You can drive a golf cart at fourteen with no license in the Villages. You can drive as fast as 20mph in The Villages..

the law provides for TV to allow exceptions in certain situations, which TV follows.
