Commercial Auto Insurance Requirements

No matter if you're a commercial driver or a business owner that employs CDL holders, you must be aware of the state and federal requirements that apply to truck drivers.

Each state sets its own commercial auto insurance requirements. State insurance laws cover matters such as the minimum amounts of bodily injury liability and property damage liability coverage that must be carried, with some states mandating additional types of auto insurance.

Meanwhile, federal CDL requirements apply to all commercial drivers regardless of location, and govern issues like minimum age limits, physical fitness, written and skills testing, driver licensing, traffic violations, and hazardous materials transportation.
