Does North Dakota have a motorcycle helmet law?

Yes. Anyone under 18 years of age who operates or rides upon a motorcycle must wear a helmet which complies with standards established by the Department of Transportation. If the operator of the motorcycle is required to wear a helmet, any passenger must also wear a helmet regardless of the age of the passenger.  (Reference NDCC 39-10.2-06.)
