Re: Insurance under an LLC
I registered my bus under my business name, which is a LLC. For the simple fact that when the plate is called in it shows up as the business and not myself. I like privacy. When i started my business I hired a lawyer to form the LLC and he charged me $400.00 This is in Rural Wisconsin, city prices are higher. But you can do this now online through your (most)states web page for less than $200.00
I have not looked into insurance yet, Wisconsin does not make you purchase it. And I see no reason you would need a CDL to drive a not for hire bus.
