    Going to start a new authority. I'm also a new driver. If you could pick any state to run out of, which would you pick? Mainly looking to keep insurance costs as low as possible. Currently based in Florida, but it seems too high for insurance, so looking at Montana etc. And switching my residence and cdl over to there.
    Do you need a physical residence or does a po box work? Do you need an office phone etc? How strict are they with that kind of stuff when it comes to garaging your truck and actually living where you claim to live?
    Thanks

    Good luck with that. IRP, IFTA and DMV require multiple proofs of residency and PO boxes are not allowed. Many will mail your tags now too to make sure you live where you claim you do.

    PA sent an IFTA guy in person to my house. MD checked my residence information before even accepting my application and saw it was a store. They refused me on the spot. The Feds make the states follow these laws.

    You're asking your competition to help you gain an advantage over them so you can essentially undercut them on lane rates. You're also asking us to help you commit insurance fraud. I'll digress but you're barking up the wrong tree.

    OP probably hadn't thought about it like that. No driving experience, no business experience, he's just looking for the best place to throw away his $. He/she just doesn't know that yet lol

    I wonder how much of your high insurance rates are due to low level of driving experience. I read on here somewhere that you need a minimum of 2 years as a driver before you can reasonably afford insurance.

    Nah. I doubt it will happen. The sort of person who considers jumping into a new business without any IRL experience and thinks putting money into it should be based on random suggestions from the internet.... Yeah he's done for just doesn't know that yet.
