It’s pretty laxed in SC. Golf carts and LSV can go on public streets 35 mph or less, and can cross streets that are 35 mph or more.
Mine just doesn’t have the windshield wiper, but there’s a vin and everything else .
For quality, I looked at it as if the batteries, motor, controller, and wheels/tires are good, then I can deal with the rest. It’s not a car and will be abused, but they are fixable as well.
My kids absolutely love the thing and we’ll get our enjoyment out of it. If I was overly worried about the quality, I wouldn’t own one now since the big branded ones are a lot more than I wanted to pay.
