We Stand Behind Our Commitment to do our Best to get You the Lowest Rates Online. Getting cheap auto insurance quotes is so easy now.

One Good Reason to Shop With Us

"After being with my insurance company for just shy of 10 years, and after having shopped


at companies that everyone around my hometown swore were the cheapest (including unadvertised "bargain" companies and giant comparison shopping brands), I decided to shop here at CheapCarInsurance and ended up saving just under $1,100 off my annual insurance bill, which is a lot more than I ever could have imagined anyone saving, especially me, an avid online shopper and extreme bargain hunter [...]

This is pretty ridiculous considering the fact that: 1st, I had regularly asked my former insurance company for reviews and discounts; 2nd, I recently got a speeding ticket in a school zone (which I am a bit ashamed to say) just before I switched; and 3rd, that $1,100 savings was before I got an additional discount for bundling my home insurance on my policy (which is a lot lower now too).

Unfortunately, and surprisingly, 10 years of loyalty did not pay off for me, and was replaced by a 5 minute quote that will save me thousands down the road. In short, our family owns 3 cars, and my new rates are about half my old rates; so not bad for the little additional time it took to compare quotes and digitally sign a policy.

Obviously, not everyone will save nearly as much as I did, but it's well worth your 5 minutes to find out, even if you end up only saving a few hundred dollars per year, potentially adding up to thousands over a couple years."

The hypothetical driver is 40 years old, female, married, employed, a college graduate, and has good credit. She has no moving violations, claims, or lapse in coverage. The vehicles are assumed to be garaged on premises, used primarily for commuting, and driven 16,000 miles per year. Car insurance quotes include commonly available discounts and are estimates and not guaranteed.

Just like Alabama’s mighty Mississippi River, state insurance laws are always on the move. To help you navigate through the winding regulations, here’s a few key points to keep in mind.

Minimum Requirements for Car Insurance in Alabama

  • The Minimum Liability Insurance of Alabama policy states that liability coverage is required for all vehicles operated in Alabama.
  • Liability Coverage minimums:
    • $25,000 for death or bodily injury, per person.
    • $50,000 for death or bodily injury, if multiple individuals are involved.
    • $25,000 for property damage.
  • Failure to insure a vehicle can result in a $500 fine for the first offense and a $1,000 fine for the second or subsequent offenses.
  • Also, Alabama’s DMV makes it clear that if the vehicle is registered without insurance, fees can reach an additional $400 with a mandatory four-month registration suspension.

New Driver Licensing Requirements

  • The Alabama Department of Public Safety requires every driver who operates a vehicle on public roadways to be licensed.
  • New drivers or residents with a license that has been expired for 3 years or more must pass the drivers examination. An out of state driver with a license not expired over one year may obtain an Alabama license without taking the road test.
  • New drivers must be 16 years of age or older to obtain a regular Alabama drivers license.
  • If under age 19, drivers must provide proof of secondary school graduation or current enrollment.
  • Vision Screening. The vision test determines an applicant’s ability to clearly see, and if the applicant normally wears corrective lenses then the lenses should be worn for the test.
    Failure to pass the test will result in a mandatory eye examination by an eye specialist to determine the need for corrective lenses. Either lenses will be issued and the applicant can report back to the screening administrator, or the exam will indicate no lenses are necessary and the applicant can take the remainder of the exam.
  • Written Test. The written test evaluates the applicant’s knowledge of the Alabama Driver License Manual. Upon successful completion of this test, a regular driver license applicant will receive his/her picture license in the mail within 30 days. An applicant for a learner’s license will be issued a restricted picture license upon completion of the exam.
    A learners license may be obtained by applicants ages 15 and 16; however, multiple restrictions apply, including the mandatory presence of a licensed occupant 21 years of age or older. The “Y” restriction license is valid for four years, at which time an applicant 16 years of age or older may complete the road test to obtain a regular drivers license.
  • Road Test. The applicant must provide his/her own vehicle for the test, and the vehicle must be insured and registered. It must be in safe and proper working order and be adequately equipped. For a list of vehicle requirements for the road test, visit Alabama’s DPS website. A licensed driver must drive the vehicle to the test site, and, if the applicant fails, a licensed driver must be present to drive the vehicle away.
    The road test evaluates the applicants ability to observe, to conrol the vehicle, to make a quick stop, to signal and turn, to backing, to knowledge of and obedience to traffic signs and signals and to make a successful three point turn. The test administrator may terminate the test and fail the applicant immediately if the applicant fails to obey a traffic law, refuses to cooperate with the administrator, is involved in an accident that the applicant could have avoided and/or the applicant makes any dangerous action.
  • Fees. Every applicant must provide a testing fee of $5.00 and a license fee of $23.50.


  • BAC limit: .08 Alabama DPS has instituted mandatory imprisonment/community service for any and all subsequent DUI/DWI violations. Following are the violations pertinent to each offense:
  • First Offense:
    • Minimum $500 and maximum $2,000 fine. Also, an additional $100 fine for the Impaired Drivers Trust Fund (IDTF) is required. (The IDTF fee applies in every subsequent offense as well.)
    • Mandatory 90 day license suspension along with completion of DUI school.
    • Possible imprisonment up to one year.
  • Second Offense:
    • Minimum $1,000 and maximum $5,000 fine.
    • Minimum 20 days community service with up to 1 year of imprisonment possible.
    • 1 year license suspension.
  • Third Offense within 5 Years:
    • Minimum $2,000 and maximum $10,000 fine.
    • Minimum 60 days imprisonment without the possibility of suspension or probation. Maximum 1 year imprisonment.
    • 3 year license suspension.
  • Fourth or Subsequent Offenses within 5 Years – Class C Felony:
    • Minimum $4,000 and maximum $10,000 fine.
    • Minimum 1 year and maximum 10 years imprisonment.
    • 5 year license suspension.

Texting & Driving Laws reports that Alabama recently banned all handheld and hands-free devices for novice drivers. The state has also banned all texting for all drivers.

Unique Laws

Every state’s laws do a great job at keeping drivers on their toes. A good law to keep in mind states that windshield wipers are mandatory on all vehicles. A little less well-known law states that it is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle. Good to know!
