Current Bill Summary

- Prepared by Senate Research -


HB 562 - This act defines an autocycle as a three wheeled motorcycle on which drivers and passengers ride in a completely enclosed, tandem seating area that is controlled with a steering wheel and pedals and contains additional safety and equipment requirements. Autocycle operators are exempted from the motorcycle helmet requirement with specific safety equipment requirements. This act also requires autocycle operators to have a driver's license without requiring a motorcycle or motortricycle license or endorsement.

This act is nearly identical to SB 344 (2015) and similar to SB 596 (2014), provisions in SS/SCS/HCS/HB 1124 (2014) and SB 503 (2014).
