Colorado Truck Insurance Requirements
Colorado state law asks local truck drivers and new ventures to maintain a minimum amount of liability insurance. The amount you need depends on the type of freight you haul and where you haul it. If you don’t cross state lines and your truck is over 10,000 GVW, you must get an intrastate only USDOT Number and have a minimum amount of insurance:
|$750,000||Liability Insurance (General Freight)|
|$1,000,000||Liability Insurance (Oil Transport)|
|$5,000,000||Liability Insurance (Hazmat)|
|$300,000||Liability Insurance (Household Goods)|
$10,000Cargo Insurance (Intrastate household goods movers and interstate contract carriers)
The insurance requirements for truck drivers who cross state lines are more thorough. You must meet the above, and you must meet all the DOT truck insurance requirements recommended by the FMCSA. Typical federal liability limits are $750,000 or $1,000,000.
Both Colorado and the USDOT 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:
- The BMC-92
- Form MCS-91
- Form E
- Form H
- Form 12
