Every Alabama registered motor vehicle must be covered by an Alabama liability insurance policy. A registrant may contact their insurance company to convert the OOS policy to an Alabama policy. If they can convert to an Alabama policy, the registrant must contact their insurer to provide both the OOS policy in effect on the verification date and the current Alabama policy information to the DOR via the upload portal at www.besuretoinsureal.com. Both policies will need to be confirmed in order to prevent suspension of the vehicle registration.
