Are you aware that there is a motorcycle helmet law in Florida? Because officials repealed the mandatory helmet law years ago, many drivers and tourists who visit our state are not aware that we do have a motorcycle helmet law in place.

Although the law doesn’t require all riders to wear helmets, our state still has a motorcycle helmet law that bikers need to understand. So before you ride a motorcycle down U.S. 301, it is important that you are aware of the helmet law requirements. Bikers are not required to wear motorcycle helmets if they have health insurance and if they are over the age of 21. This means that anyone without health insurance or who is under the age of 21 is required to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle in Florida.

Mallard Perez encourages all riders to wear motorcycle helmets, as helmets help to reduce the seriousness of brain injuries and head trauma in the event of a crash. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, call us for a free initial consultation at 888-409-3805 or contact us online at
