What is the helmet law for riding motorcycles in Florida? Florida

Florida Motorcycle Helmet Laws

The helmet law in Florida is a little different than the helmet laws in most states, as it has a financial component.

To drive a motorcycle without a helmet in the Sunshine State, you must be at least at least 21 years old AND have at least $10,000 in personal injury insurance. If you're not at least 21 with $10,000 coverage, you must wear a helmet.

Moped and Scooter Helmet Laws

Florida has safety laws for mopeds and scooters, too: All passengers younger than 16 years old must wear protective headgear (i.e., helmets).

Motorcycle Riding and Safety

Even if you have a motorcycle license or endorsement, it's still a good idea to keep your riding skills sharp by participating in a motorcycle safety class every few years.
