Kentucky law requires all persons under 21 who operate or ride on a motorcycle or who ride in an attached sidecar to wear a helmet.
Helmets are also required to be worn by those drivers who have a motorcycle instruction permit and those who have held their motorcycle operator’s license for less than one year. Those driving under a permit are not permitted to carry passengers.
All motorcycle operators, regardless of age, must wear eye protection that has been approved by the Secretary of Transportation’s cabinet.
