If insurance coverage cannot be verified, variances between the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), insurance policy number or National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) number provided to local licensing officials could result in the insurer being unable to verify insurance coverage for the vehicle.
To determine a possible VIN discrepancy, you should check the VIN listed on your insurance card and registration receipt to find any discrepancies. If the VIN on your insurance card is incorrect, you should contact your insurer to get the information corrected. If you believe the VIN reflected on the registration receipt is incorrect, you should check with your local licensing official.
ALDOR will use the information to attempt to verify your insurance coverage with the insurer.
Visit your local licensing official to pay the required reinstatement fee ($200 for first suspension; $400 for second and subsequent suspensions) and provide evidence of current Alabama liability insurance coverage.
If the vehicle was in exempt (stored, inoperable, or other unused) status, then visit your local licensing official to surrender the license plate within 30 days of the MLI verification notice. Failure to do so will result in suspension of your vehicle registration.
The vehicle registration reinstatement fee provided for in the MLI law is a separate fee from the ticket fines related to tickets issued by law enforcement and assessed by the Administrative Office of Courts (AOC) or the local court system.
In accordance with Section 32-7A-12, Code of Alabama 1975, the department will suspend the vehicle registration of any motor vehicle determined to be in violation of Section 32-7A-4, Code of Alabama 1975.
