Commercial auto insurance

Business vehicles in New Hampshire do not need to be covered by commercial auto insurance. However, you must be able to prove you can meet the state's Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Requirements in the event of an at-fault accident.

If you purchase insurance, the state imposes coverage minimums. New Hampshire's minimum requirements for auto liability insurance are:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $25,000 property damage liability
  • $50,000 uninsured motorist coverage per accident
  • $25,000 uninsured motorist coverage per person

Trucking companies may need additional coverage to comply with regulations.

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.
