New Motorcycle Helmet Law

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

Effective this year, all cyclists under 21 years of age must wear a helmet at all times. Recent changes in state law still permit the helmetless operation of motorcycles by bikers 21 and older if certain special insurance coverage is purchased. The new law requires motorcyclists under the age of 21 to use distinctive license plates so that law enforcement officers can quickly identify them as riders subject to this new mandatory helmet law.
