West Virginia Motorcycle Laws
As with most states, West Virginia has motorcycle laws which may be different from another. Our laws are designed to protect our citizens from injuries which may occur relating to a motorcycle accident.
Some West Virginia motorcycle laws include:
- We accept motorcycle endorsements from other states
- A daytime headlight is required
- Eye protection is required
- Handlebars can be a maximum of 15” above the seat
- Lane splitting is not authorized
- One left or right mirror is required
- A passenger seat is required if carrying a passenger
- A helmet is required to be worn
Of course, these laws are for motorcyclists operating on our roadways. There are a separate set of rules for off-road bikes, which can be found by contacting our attorneys.
