Hawaii Motorcycle Helmet Law
Hawaii requires all motorcycle drivers and riders to wear helmets that are securely fastened with a chin strap. No one is permitted to operate or ride on a motorcycle unless they are 18 or older.
In addition, all drivers and riders must wear safety glasses, goggles, or a face shield if the motorcycle does not have a windscreen or windshield. The helmet requirement does not apply to riders or operators three-wheelers which are powered by an electric motor, have a full body enclosed cab, and have a seat belt assembly or a child restraint system for the driver and passenger, which both riders must use.
The Director of Highway Safety is permitted to adopt rules concerning the required use of any other protective devices, except helmets.
To be sure you’re in compliance with Hawaii law, check with the Director before taking to the open road.
