Q. DOT-Approved Motorcycle Helmets


According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), DOT motorcycle helmet certification is determined by the company, meaning it is a self compliant program. You can view testing results of motorcycle helmets by year here.

Motorcycle helmets are covered in Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 218.


For additional information, please contact the NHTSA Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance by calling (202) 366-5291 or by e-mail at OVSCPublic@dot.gov
