Texas Truck Insurance Requirements
Texas law requires local truckers and new ventures to keep a certain amount of liability insurance. How much you need is determined by the type of freight you pull and where you haul it. If you don’t cross state lines and your truck is more than GVW, you must get a TXDMV Number and keep a minimum amount of liability insurance:
|$300,000||Liability Insurance (Household Goods)|
|$500,000||Liability Insurance (General Freight)|
|$1,000,000||Liability Insurance (Oil Transport)|
|$5,000,000||Liability Insurance (Hazmat)|
|$5,000/vehicle and $10,000/catastrophe||Cargo Insurance (Intrastate household goods movers and interstate contract carriers)|
The insurance requirements for truck drivers who leave the state go into further detail. In addition to the above, you must meet all the semi truck insurance requirements laid out by the federal government. Most federal liability limits are $750,000 or $1,000,000.
Both Texas 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 DOT truck insurance requirements are fulfilled. They must be submitted before you can receive your authority. Some common forms include:
- Form H
- The BMC-99
- Form MCS-98
- Form E
