What are the auto insurance coverage requirements in Alabama?

Mobile drivers must adhere to the state mandatory minimums for insurance coverage, which are the following:

Coverage Requirements Most Common
Bodily Injury Liability 20,000/40,000 100,000/300,000

The Alabama Department of Insurance reminds drivers that liability is an extremely limited form of coverage. Your company will only pay out claims if the accident is deemed your fault (or something for which you are liable).

Anything else – whether you’re a hit-and-run victim, or the victim of theft – will not be covered by your policy. To verify you’re still receiving the cheapest rate, you can compare cheap Alabama auto insurance quotes online.

The statewide average for Alabama motorists can be as high as $174 per month. However, under certain circumstances, Mobile drivers could get a rate as low as $38/month* under the right factors.

It all depends on things such as your driving record, your credit score, and what type of vehicle you want to insure.

Sometimes, there are factors that can influence your monthly premium in ways you might not expect. Some of them are:

How does my marital status affect my auto insurance rates in Mobile, AL?

For single policies, marital status is a negligible factor when determining your premiums. However, married couples have the option of bundling their policies together. Most insurance providers will offer substantial discounts for this.

How does my gender affect my auto insurance rates in Mobile, AL?

Traffic in Mobile can get pretty hairy, with the average motorist spending over 30 minutes in traffic each way. Despite the horrible work commute, only about 12% of workers carpool to the office each day.

Driving fewer miles each year, or reserving your vehicle for trips to and from work only, won’t save you much on your monthly rates.

The only thing which will influence your price is whether or not you designate your vehicle as “for business” use. Business vehicles are typically charged 10-12 percent more each month.

How do my coverage level and deductible affect my insurance rates in Mobile, AL?

Getting all the coverage you need can be expensive. That’s why some companies will charge you less per month if you agree to raise your deductible. However, be sure to save a little money away in case of an emergency if you choose to go this route.
