Texas Motorcycle Laws

Motorcycling is very popular in Texas. We have one of the largest motorcycle populations in the United States. Before you take to the road, you should know the Texas laws governing motorcycles, and the common sense safety rules.

Texas law requires that minors, ages 15 through 17, pass a basic motorcycle operator training course approved by the Department of Public Safety before applying for a license to operate a motorcycle.

The operator of a motorcycle on a public roadway must hold a valid license as a motorcycle operator (Class M driver license). To receive a license to operate a motorcycle, applicants must pass a written test covering traffic laws pertaining to motorcycles, and a road test. The road test may be waived if the operator has taken The Motorcycle Safety Course.

Helmets are required for all motorcycle operators under the age of 21. Helmets must meet federal Department of Transportation (DOT) standards.

Operators age 21 and over may apply for a helmet exemption sticker. These operators must be covered by a health insurance plan that provides them with at least $10,000 in medical benefits for injuries incurred as a result of an accident while operating or riding on a motorcycle, or have medical or personal injury protection coverage under their motorcycle liability insurance policy.
