Kansas Motorcycle Helmet Law


In Kansas, the law requires only those motorcycle drivers and riders under 18 to wear a helmet that complies with the minimum federal safety standards.

All drivers and passengers, however, must wear protective glasses, goggles, or transparent face shields that are shatter proof and impact resistant, except when the motorcycle is equipped with a windscreen that has a minimum height of 10 inches measured from the center of the handlebars.

Kansas law does not require those who ride in enclosed sidecars to wear a helmet or eye protection.
