Texas Motorcycle Safety Laws
Helmet use for motorcyclists can change depending on the state you’re in. As a Texas motorcyclist, it’s important to know how the state treats helmet safety.
Helmet use depends on factors like age, insurance coverage, and riding experience. According to the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation (TDLR), wearing a motorcycle helmet is optional for motorbike riders 21 and over, provided they have health insurance or they’ve completed a motorcycle operator training course offered by the TDLR.
In addition to motorcycle helmet laws, Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) also urges drivers to:

- Give motorcyclists room when passing
- Always go the speed limit
