Motorcycle Helmet Law

State law says motorcyclists and their passengers must wear protective headgear, with two exceptions for riders 21 and older. No helmet is required if the rider:

  • has successfully completed a motorcycle safety course.
  • has proof of health insurance with a minimum of $10,000 coverage for injuries resulting from a motorcycle crash. (TX DOT)
