Satisfactory proof of required minimum insurance coverage

  • Minimum liability insurance coverage cannot expire prior to effective date of registration or renewal credentials.

Fleet Policy

A fleet policy is a commercial vehicle policy that insures two or more vehicles where the VIN (vehicle identification number) is not included on the policy. Only an Insurance Card or verification in electronic format on a mobile device is satisfactory proof of the required minimum insurance coverage for a vehicle insured under a fleet policy. Insurance cards or electronic format verifications must contain the following:

  • Name of Insurer
  • Policy Number
  • Policy Issue or Effective Date
  • Policy Expiration Date
  • Name of Insured
  • The word “Fleet” at bottom of Insurance card

Policy Information Card

Registrants not covered under a fleet policy must provide a policy information card issued by the insurer that contains at least the following:

  • Name of Insurer
  • Policy Number
  • Policy Issue or Effective Date
  • Policy Expiration Date
  • Name of Insured
  • Year, Make, Model, & VIN of Each Insured Vehicle

*Certificates of Insurance are allowed as satisfactory proof of the required minimum insurance coverage. Insurance Binders are only accepted if insurance policy was applied for within the last 30 days and the binder was issued for a period not to exceed 30 days. Declaration pages are not acceptable proof of minimum motor vehicle liability insurance coverage.
