    You have to get your own insurance. You will be paying twice.

    No he will not be paying twice, you either get your own authority with your own insurance, or you get your DOT number and lease on to another carrier and run their insurance.[/QUOTE]

    The OOIDA said I need primary liability insurance to activate my authority, $750k worth. I pay a weekly fee for that now for my leased truck, but it's in the carriers name. I was just wondering if there was anyway I could use that to activate my authority.
