Rhode Island requires any operator under the age of twenty-one (21) shall wear a helmet of a type approved by the administrator of motor vehicles. In addition, all new operators, regardless of age, shall be required, for a period of one year from the date of issuance of the first license pursuant to wear a helmet of a type approved by said administrator.
Rhode Island requires any passenger on a motorcycle must wear a properly fitting helmet of a type approved by the administrator of the division of motor vehicles. No person shall operate a motorcycle unless any passenger on it wears a helmet.
