Sweeny Police Department
ATTN: Golf Cart Registration
123 N. Oak Street
Sweeny, TX 77480


The golf cart must be inspected by an official at the Sweeny Police Department before the permit is issued.  CAUTION: Golf carts are not allowed to be operated on the roadways for the purpose of driving to the police department for this inspection process — the golf cart must be transported for the inspection process.  We will not inspect nor issue a permit if the golf cart is driven on the roadway prior to the permit being issued.


City council passed the Golf Cart Ordinance on February 18, 2020.  The registration and permit process will begin at the police department on March 16, 2020.


It is a violation of state law to operate a golf cart on a roadway without a license plate affixed to it issued by the DMV (RE: Texas Transportation Code, Section 551.402).


If you have any questions about the registration/permit process, please contact the Sweeny Police Department at (979) 548-3112 Monday through Friday between 8am-5pm, or contact us at
