    Been a company driver for about a year, & I was going to start hotshotting so I applied for my own authority and llc.. a month later and some unfortunate things happened, making me unable to afford the insurance and truck payments. I was wondering, could I get a company job and put the inactive authority on hold for about 6months until I can afford it or will it expire? Thank you & god bless

    So if you had an active authority & your insurance lapsed they will revoke the authority. Yes you will be able to reactivate it for a fee of $80. Once you show your insurance is reestablished.

    if you don't show you have active insurance within 60 days of assigning of DOT number.... you application is no longer valid.
