    Can you obtain an operating authority without a cargo insurance?

    Yes, that said who’s going to load you without cargo insurance. but maybe you just need operating authority for some reason or other.

    You can file it but it won’t be active until it has insurance and they send the form to fmcsa

    Yes unless you are a household goods mover. Proof of cargo insurance is not a FMCSA requirement for operating authority as an interstate motor carrier. You must have public liability on file (form MCS-90) and unless you are hauling low value commodities no one will load you without cargo. Some states require proof of cargo insurance to have intrastate operating authority unless hauling certain low value commodities so dropping cargo may cause you to lose intrastate rights in some states.
