Quad Bike Riders Must Legally Wear Helmet On Roads

Riders of four-wheel quad and all-terrain bikes are now required by law to wear a helmet when travelling on the public road network.

The Motor Cycles (Protective Headgear) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1999 which mandates the wearing of helmets for those who ride motor cycles, has been extended to those who ride motor quadricycles (quad bikes).

Those found in breach of the law can be fined up to £500.
