I DONT THINK IT SHOULD BE ANY PROBLEMS IF YOU GO ON UR OWN
AS AN OWNER OPERATOR,BUT TO MAKE SURE,TALK TO A BROKER ,THEY
COULD HELP U GET LOADS AND ALSO GIVE U THE BEST ANSWER TO UR
QUESTION,REMEMBER U ARE THE OWNER OF UR COMPANY IT SOULDNT
MATTER WHAT KIND OF RECORD U HAVE AS LONG U DONT GET POINTS
IN UR LICENSE THAT WILL HURT UR POCKET, HOPE THIS COULD HELP
GOOD LUCK!!

being a owner op is harder than most think and more expensive as far as your record that won't be much of an issue maybe try smaller companies
