SIKHS can apply for an exemption to the road rules in order to be able to ride a bike without removing their turban, a government spokesman has said.
But the government has no intention of making a general exemption to the law.
A Hobart man is reportedly calling for a change to the law to exempt Sikhs from having to wear a helmet when they ride a motorcycle, saying the law prevents him from getting a motorcycle because it would require removing his turban.
National Sikh Council of Australia president Ajmer Singh Gill said most Sikhs in Australia opted not to ride a bike or motorcycle because of mandatory helmet laws.
"A lot of people feel it's part of their body, rather than an addition," Mr Gill said.
However, he said while the council would welcome an exemption to the law, it was not a priority.
According to the council, there are 75 people of the Sikh faith living in Tasmania.
Under Tasmania's road regulations, the Transport Commissioner has the power to exempt a person from a particular road rule if the person has a medical certificate or other evidence that it is "impracticable, undesirable or inexpedient" for them to comply.
"As it stands no exemption (on this issue) has been sought, either written, or on the phone, to the commissioner or his delegate," a government spokesman said.
Most applications request an exemption from seatbelt laws for medical reasons.
