Florida Commercial Truck Insurance
Trucking Ins. Coverages
Florida and the FMCSA have specific insurance requirements for semis. If you have your own authority, some coverages are mandatory, like primary liability. If you are a for-hire owner operator, you may be looking for physical damage truck insurance, bobtail coverage, and non trucking liability.
No matter what type of coverage your operation needs.
Florida Truck Insurance Requirements
Florida state law requires local truck drivers and new ventures to keep a certain amount of liability insurance. The amount you need is determined by what freight you pull and where you haul it. If you don’t cross state lines and your truck is over 26,000 GVW, you must get an intrastate only USDOT Number and be insured up to the following levels:
|$1,000,000||Liability Insurance (Oil Transport)|
|$5,000,000||Liability Insurance (Hazmat)|
|$300,000||Liability Insurance (Household Goods)|
|$750,000||Liability Insurance (General Freight)|
The insurance requirements for truck drivers who travel out-of-state are more detailed. In addition to the above, you must be in compliance with all the DOT truck insurance requirements laid out by the FMCSA. Most federal liability limits are between $750,000 and $1,000,000.
Both Florida and the FMCSA require certain filings be submitted by your insurance agent. Your insurance agent or insurance company should take care of these filings for you. These forms show the government that all your semi truck insurance requirements are fulfilled. They must be submitted before you can receive your authority. Some common forms include:
- Form E
- Form H
- The BMC-92
- Form MCS-91
