Commercial auto insurance

All business-owned vehicles in Hawaii must be covered by commercial auto insurance. Hawaii requires a minimum of $20,000 bodily injury liability per person, $40,000 bodily injury liability per accident, $10,000 property damage liability per accident, and $10,000 personal injury protection.

Though it's not required, personal vehicles driven for work purposes should be covered by hired and non-owned auto insurance, as personal auto policies usually exclude business use. It can be added to general liability insurance or a business owner's policy.
