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

New Jersey offers basic and standard auto insurance policies. The standard plan includes a minimum of:

  • $15,000 per person bodily injury liability
  • $30,000 per accident bodily injury liability
  • $5,000 property damage liability per accident
  • $15,000 personal injury protection (PIP)

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 a general liability policy or a business owner's policy (BOP).
