If the helmet has decals from both the DOT and SNELL, it will exceed the minimum safety requirements of the US Govt.

Motorcycle helmets need to be either DOT or SNELL certified, if the helmet has that certification then you can use a scooter helmet on a motorcycle.

No, it needs to be DOT (Department of Transportation) approved.

A motorcycle helmet must meet DOT gauges to be legitimate for the street, a snowmobile head protector does not.

When a motorcycle helmet is DOT certified, that means it has been certified by the United Stated Department of Transportation, following strict safety standards. Once a helmet has been DOT certified it is identified with a sticker on the helmet itself. Unfortunately, not every helmet sold that has a DOT sticker is DOT compliant. Visit the following site for a partial listing of the most popular brand helmets. http://www.helmetcheck.org/database.aspx CarlGlas Any helmet that is DOT approved will have a sticker on the helmet. If you go to a helmet manufacturers website, it will state what certifications the helmet has.
