This will vary depending on driving record, the car you drive, your age, the company that you are insured with, the coverage that you choose, where you live and probably a factor or two more. The best thing you can do is to do your homework and call a few companies in your area to find out if you are getting the best premium and coverage for your situation.

Most likely yes, but what do you want to be covered for? Unless you made a material misrepresentation about how you would be using your vehicle to your insurance company.

None, If you have a personal Auto Insurance Policy, " No coverage at all" will extend to you nor to any other injured party while you were engaged in a Delivery Service Business.

While engaged in a Delivery Service Business with only a Personal Auto Insurance Policy in place, you are basically driving without coverage. Although a Business Auto Use Endorsement to your Personal Auto Policy will extend coverage for certain Business or job related errands such as occasionally picking up offices supplies and trips to meet with customers, Delivery services are always excluded from a personal Auto Policy. You need to obtain Business or commercial auto coverage to be compliant with your state Insurance Regulations.

Does your insurance cover you to drive a car that has no insurance?

Your personal auto insurance will be secondary to the insurance of the vehicle that you are driving (assuming you do not own it and it is not a business vehicle). If you get involved in a car accident while you are operating a vehicle that is -not- yours, then the insurance of that vehicle has to pay first, and if that insurance is not enough (or is not there) then your insurance will kick in. Notice that if you get pulled over by police they will ask you to show proof of insurance on the vehicle (not your insurance.) The law requires all vehicles to be insured, not individuals.

Does driving semi trucks require a special type of automobile insurance?

Yes. All commercial driving requires both a special type of license as well as a special "rider" on your insurance. However, the legal requirement for the insurance is most likely met by the company that owns the insurance-- that is, the truck is what is covered. So, the law probably does not require you to get additional insurance. As a semi driver, you will eventually want to be insured for personal liability-- so that your family is protected should you cause an accident during your job.
