Default Any Norcal dyno shops allow one to "self dyno"?

Basically, I don't like others to drive my car and I understand that there most likely are legal implications in place for shop operators to be the only persons near the car.

I'm just wondering if there are shops who know how to free themselves of this liability. I just want to drive my car onto the dyno machine, let the shop properly secure the vehicle down, I hop in and row the gears whilst a shop operator tells me when to stop. That's all.

The dyno costs far more than your car. No one's going to let you operate the machine. you need to let it go and just watch.
