Per MCO 5100.29C, Vol 3 MC Traffic Safety Program – required Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for all riders and passengers.

The following are definitions of PPE:



An approved helmet meets the standards of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 218. When a helmet manufacture meets or exceeds FMVSS 218 test standards, "DOT" and/or "SNELL" may be applied by the manufacturer and usually appears centered on the back of the helmet in white letters on a black background. Regardless of the lettering on the back of the helmet, a non-removable (usually stitched) tag is installed on the inside the helmet that indicates the helmet meets FMVSS 218. There is also a tag or sticker inside the helmet that provides make, manufacture, material used for manufacture of the helmet, and date of manufacture. The interior head padding is typically one inch (1") thick, and the chin strap is riveted to the helmet and uses a non-snapping buckle under the chin.


Eye Protection

Eye protection is defined as riding glasses or goggles that are American National Safety Institute (ANSI) approved and shatter resistant. Eye protection used without a face shield or windshield should seal the cup of the eye through the use of a strip of foam or material
around inside of lens.


Hand Protection

Hand protection consists of full fingered riding gloves. The glove shall be constructed of, or with, abrasion resistant material. Gloves are preferably designed for riding, have added padding, and retain a natural curl when not worn.


Long Sleeves or Jacket

A long sleeve shirt shall be past the elbow while the rider's hands are on the handlebar grips. A riding shirt or jacket should be constructed of abrasion resistant material. An armored type riding jacket made of abrasion resistant material is highly recommended.


Leg Protection

Leg protection is sturdy, full length pants or trousers that extend past the knee, and meet the top of the riding boot when seated on the motorcycle under normal riding conditions.


Foot Protection

Foot protection is sturdy, above the ankle shoes or boots that provide support and traction when riding or when in transition of movement from a stop/starting position. Unacceptable foot wear is defined as any shoe or boot that has an open toe, open foot/heel design, and extensive heels over 2 inches, or a total canvas or rubber material construction.
