Living By The Code: Rules That All Hells Angels Have To Follow

The Hells Angels is one of the most well-known biker clubs in the world, and it all started with a group of motorcyclists in Fontana, California. Founded in 1948, the Hells Angels now has hundreds of international charters. Though certain members have been known to break the law, there’s one code of conduct they’ll always stick to: their own. From what they wear and drive to how they get in and stay in the club, these Hells Angels rules are no joke.

On their website, the Hells Angels clearly state that if you have to ask how to get into a club then you “probably won’t understand the answer.” Becoming a member is a long process that can take years.

That’s because once you join, you’re in for life. Cultivating a relationship with the other members of the charter takes time. The only thing that can determine if you’re truly ready to join is if the rest of the group votes you in.
