California truck insurance filings
Having a commercial truck insurance and being legal are two different things. You want to make sure your trucking company is following the rules and regulations of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The Caltrans and FMCSA both require insurance filings and/or endorsements on your truck insurance policy. We can make sure you get the correct insurance coverages to stay in compliance with California and the federal government regulations.
The BMC-91 filing is a guarantees to the FMCSA that you have enough Liability insurance to cover the increased risk of transporting goods or people across state lines.
An MCS-90 is an endorsement that must be attached to Liability insurance and Cargo Liability insurance policies if you are required to have a federal filing. The MCS-90 endorsement guarantees the minimum required protection for members of the public who are involved in accidents for which you are deemed legally responsible.
MCP-65 filing is a certificate of insurance that must be sent to the California DMV as proof that your auto liability limit meet the minimum requirement of $750,000.
The MCP-65 filing has to come directly from the insurance company.
