Illinois Motorcycle Insurance Laws
Like most states, Illinois does require that you carry an insurance policy on your bike. Let’s look at liability minimums: Illinois bodily injury and property damage liability limits are, respectively: $20,000/$40,000/$15,000. The first two numbers are the bodily injury limits for a single individual and then all injuries combined. The last amount is the minimum liability amount for damage to property.
Do You Have to Wear a Helmet in Illinois?
Unlike most states, Illinois has no helmet law. However, we encourage you to act as if wearing a helmet IS a requirement in the state. Riding sans helmet severely increases your risk of head trauma in the event of an accident.

Buying a Used Bike in Illinois – a Checklist
When buying a used bike in Illinois from a private seller, you want to use a checklist to make sure you don’t get stuck with a problematic machine.
- Research models online, talk to owners, and make sure you are getting the right bike for your budget, your riding style, and your experience level.
- Make sure VIN on the title, frame, and motor.
- Inspect tire wear and bearing play. Needing to buy and install new tires can add a lot to the effective cost of the bike. Play in bearings is DANGEROUS.
- Check maintenance records. If there is nothing written, request a verbal account of the bike’s maintenance history.
- Inspect air filter and fluid levels. Lack of upkeep could signal problems elsewhere.
- Give the bike a test run. Even if a test ride is not allowed, ask the rider to put the bike on its centerstand and perform a dry run.
