To learn more about obtaining a commercial driver’s license, you can refer to the FMCSA’s CDL site

How can I lower my monthly insurance premiums with CarrierHQ’s Small Fleet Advantage program?

CarrierHQ’s Small Fleet Advantage program allows fleet owners to receive monthly premium reductions during the first full month of coverage based on safe driving. It’s easy to coach your drivers to improve performance using our Safety Center driving reports and safety data. Safe driving discounts are calculated each month using CarrierHQ’s exclusive FAIR Score. The program is a great way to save monthly AND encourage safe driving. It’s a win-win!

What is a FAIR score and how does it impact my fleet?

A FAIR Score is a rating CarrierHQ uses to evaluate driver safety and to determine if a customer qualifies for safe driving discounts. FAIR Scores are updated monthly and are used to determine if a customer qualifies for the safe
driving discount. Upon signing up for CarrierHQ, customers receive a self-guided training on FAIR Scores and the safe driving discount. Customers can take an active role in monitoring their FAIR Score by signing up to receive text or email reports. To qualify for the discount, companies need to have a score of at least 716. Some of the factors that are used to determine FAIR Scores include:


  • Speeding

  • Congested driving

  • Travel by time of day

  • Travel by road class

  • Parking locations

  • Annual mileage

CarrierHQ’s program provides insurance coverage for Class 6, 7, and 8 vehicles. Truck classification looks at the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating or the GVWR. 


  • Class 6 vehicles have GVWRs between 19,501 and 26,000 and include three axels, single unit vehicles. 

  • Class 7 vehicles have GVWRs between 26,0001 and 33,000 pounds and include single units with four or more axels.
