  • Owner must be a driver.
  • All drivers must have had their hazmat endorsement for 2 years.
  • The insurance companies will require a work history for the owners and drivers.
  • They are looking to see what hazmat you have been hauling and actually prefer you will be hauling what you have experience hauling.
