Important Alabama Auto Insurance Laws!

1. All vehicles registered or operated in AL are required to be covered by a liability insurance policy.

2. You are required to carry proof of liability insurance coverage in your vehicle. The best proof of liability insurance is the insurance card issued by the insurance company.

The insurance cards are issued by companies qualified to issue motor vehicle liability insurance in Alabama, and contain the vehicle year model, vehicle make, vehicle identification number, name of the insured, the name of the insurance company, the policy number, and the effective and expiration dates of the policy.
