Persons 18 years of age or older "may not" be required to wear a helmet when operating a motorcycle in Alaska as long as that person is licensed to operate a motorcycle.
However, motorcycle operators are required to wear eye protection unless the motorcycle is equipped with a windscreen or windshield.
The law was established and is regulated by Alaska's Public Safety Commissioner. Because these standards and specifications are subject to change, it's best to check with the Commissioner before riding as a driver or passenger on a motorcycle in Alaska.
