    They don't care how long you've been a driver, they care how long you have been in business with your own authority. As mentioned above, you can buy somebody else's authority that has been in business for a while, but that's about all you can do.

    by co owner.. do you mean office type or 2 guys in 1 truck co owner?
    if office type, you should have a customer base established and have direct contacts that you can reach out to to get loads.
