    Hello,

    Insurance companies are giving me a problem with obtaining insurance because my dad also has a DOT number. Has anyone experienced this ?

    Do you have your own DOT #? Are your addresses the same that might be the problem

    What’s the safety rating like on your dad’s DOT number? Maybe the insurance thinks you two are trying to pull a fast one on them to lower the premium.

    My dad’s safety rating is in good standing. Nothing wrong with the rating at all. I don’t know what to do

    We live together but have the dot’s registered under different addresses. Have you ever heard of something like this?

    Is your truck titled in your name or your father’s name or your father’s business.

    That’s about all I can think of..

    My truck is under my name. My father is not related to it.

    I would say they are still tying the addresses together. Is your drivers license and your father’s registered at the same address?
