Helmet Laws in Michigan

Recent Changes to Michigan Helmet Laws

Bike riders in the state of Michigan have long been required to wear a helmet when riding. This has led to lower fatality rates in accidents involving motorcycles. Recently, however, these laws have been altered to allow some exceptions. The mandatory helmet law has been repealed, and motorcyclists may now ride without a helmet if they meet certain stipulations. To be exempt from helmet requirements, you must be at least 21 years of age. You must also have had your motorcycle endorsement for at least two years; in lieu of this, you may also choose to pass a motorcycle safety course.

Lastly, you must have at least $20,000 worth of insurance benefits for the first-party, payable if you should become involved in a motorcycle accident. In order for a passenger to qualify for the "no helmet" allowance, he or she must also be at least 21 years old. Having a minimum of $20,000 insurance for the passenger (separate from the operator) is also required if the passenger desires to ride without a helmet. If you do not meet all of these conditions, you must wear a helmet to legally ride in the state of Michigan. Failure to do so could result in being ticketed by law enforcement.
