    Going to be buying my own truck come friday!!!

    With that being said, I am buying from a private seller in MS and i'm going to be driving it home here to CO.
    I am not ready to immediately drive it, as I am waiting for my authority to finish processing. How and who do I go through to get some type of insurance so that I can drive it home?
     
    SimpleTrucker Thanks this.

    You'll need insurance before your authority is activated. I would think arranging that a couple days before you pick up the truck would be the best way to go. You should have been researching insurance long before now. I think you're going to find that with new authority, it's going to cost a lot more than you think, as in many thousands more. I went through Insuremyrig.com

    To get the truck home you need bobtail insurance and temporary tags or trip permit.
    Don’t need the authority unless hauling freight.
