Commercial truck insurance is required for all operators in Florida and can act as a safety net in case an accident occurs. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) sets minimum requirements for commercial truck insurance. Additionally, each commercial truck driver will have insurance requirements based on the type of vehicle operated, weight of the vehicle, as well as the type of cargo transported. These factors can affect the minimum required coverage. Understanding what is required, as well as any special provisions that can be added, will help ensure adequate trucking insurance coverage in the state of Florida.
