All business-owned vehicles in Montana must be covered by commercial auto insurance. This policy covers the cost of accidents involving work vehicles.

Montana's minimum requirements for auto liability insurance are:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $20,000 property damage liability per accident

Trucking companies may need additional coverage to comply with regulations.

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