Fair car insurance in Alabama

How it works

Traditional auto insurance companies base your rate on your demographic data, such as age, marital status, or ZIP code. We don’t think that’s a fair way to offer car insurance quotes. That’s why at Root, we’ll base your Alabama auto insurance rate primarily on how you drive, not who you are.

State requirements for car insurance in Alabama

What are the minimum requirements in Alabama?

To legally operate a vehicle in Alabama, you must carry Liability insurance. If you are found driving without these coverages, you may face fines and suspension of your vehicle registration.

Liability coverage

Liability car insurance helps to pay for any bodily injuries or property damage that occurs from a car accident you cause. It does not cover you or your passengers (that’s what MedPay is for) or your vehicle (but Collision and Comprehensive coverages do).

Minimum Liability coverage Alabama drivers must carry:

  • $25,000 for bodily injury (per person)

  • $50,000 for bodily injury (per accident)

  • $25,000 for property damage (per accident)

You can select higher limits if you’d like more coverage.
