Michigan Motorcycle Helmet Law
In Michigan, riders must wear helmets until they are age 21. Riders over 21 do not need to wear a helmet if: A.) The person has had a motorcycle endorsement on his or her operator’s license for at least 2 years or the person passes a motorcycle safety course; B.) The person operating the motorcycle or the rider has in effect security for the first-party medical benefits payable in the event that he or she is involved in an accident (for a motorcycle operator without a rider, $20,000 or more; for a motorcycle operator with a rider, $20,000 per person per occurrence or more). However, if the rider has security of $20,000 or more, then the operator is only required to have security in the amount of $20,000 or more.
