    The insured on the policy needs to match the name of the entity applying for authority. What are you trying to hide?

    Be independent, that's why we got our own numbers. Succeed or fail, it's YOUR way

    Someone with more wheel time than me may know better, but I'm pretty sure the insurance holder and the authority applicant must be one in the same.

    No you can’t.

    My experience Is this fact, because you are asking this question, you are going to fail.

    Recommend to you that you get at least a few years driving for someone else before you even consider moving independent- either leased to a carrier or with your own authority.
