Arizona Motorcycle Helmet Laws

Motorcycles are fun vehicles, but they are also inherently dangerous. A motorcyclist has virtually no protection from external crash forces, and motorcycle safety gear is crucial for preventing catastrophic injuries and death from serious accidents. Arizona’s motorcycle helmet laws exist to keep riders safe, and all riders should know these laws and make good decisions about motorcycle safety and appropriate equipment. As of now, Arizona only requires helmets for motorcycle operators and passengers under the age of 18. However, the state does require all riders to wear appropriate eye protection, such as a visor, goggles, protective glasses, or a transparent face shield unless the motorcycle has a protective windshield.
