Heads up riders! A new law has taken effect in Nevada and Las Vegas Harley-Davidson wants you to be informed so you can ride safely and legally wherever the road takes you.

All About Nevada’s New Motorcycle Helmet Safety Law

What Is the Law?

The Nevada Helmet Law is an existing law that requires all motorcyclists and passengers to wear helmets that meet U.S. Department of Transportation standards while riding in the state of Nevada.

What’s Changed?

As of October 1st, all riders and passengers riding on trikes and mopeds must also wear helmets. Helmets are required for vehicles with handlebars and saddle seats. However, riders and passengers do not need to wear a helmet while riding a three-wheeled vehicle with an enclosed cab and steering wheel.

Do I Need to Wear a Helmet While Riding an Off-highway Vehicle?

The state of Nevada and the riding crew at Las Vegas Harley-Davidson always recommends that drivers and passengers in vehicles that are not enclosed with a cab wear a helmet every time they ride.
