Motorcycle offences

In NSW, riders of motorcycles, and any passengers, must wear approved motorcycle helmets. There are no exceptions.

The 2001 Road Safety Task Force recommended increased penalties for non-use of helmets. These recommendations have been adopted to improve road safety and reduce the road toll.

The adopted recommendations include higher fines and over long weekends, double demerit points.
