Online Insurance Filings for Motor Carriers in Colorado

Certification of motor carrier insurance coverage is only accepted through the Commission's online system and must be filed directly by the insurance company. Generally, the insurance company underwriter has been designated by the insurance company to log on to our system to make these filings.

An insurance company cannot make a filing online for a carrier until the carrier's application has been entered by PUC staff into our system. The company name should be in our system by its legal name that matches the company's trade name. If no trade name, use the business name that is on file with the Secretary of State. To verify a trade name or business name for a motor carrier, go to the Colorado Secretary of State's website at: www.sos.state.co.us/biz/BusinessEntityCriteriaExt.do
