Has anyone here had experience of getting an Alabama driving license (in the last year or two)? I am going to do my written test this week but AAA won't insure me to drive without a US license... I have a UK license and drove in the UK for two years - so how am I supposed to practice and do the practical test if they won't insure me...?

Trouble is, that could turn out to be expensive.. We don't want to have to spend any more than is absolutely necessary to get my license.

 

Would they not hand out a learner's permit for a circumstance such as this?

I was able to add my husband (from the UK) to my Progressive insurance policy as an "international driver" until he is able to obtain his SC license.  It only added about $12 a month to my policy and now he is considered an insured driver for when he goes to take his test.  I would call and double check that your insurance carrier doesn't cover international drivers on their policy and if that holds true then you may just have to bite the bullet and look for another insurer.  I know in SC there is no other option.  You must prove insurance coverage when you obtain your license.  Good luck! I hope you are able to sort it!

You don't need to be added to the insurance as a learner. You would be covered as long as you only learn to drive with your husband in the passenger seat. Or if he has his insurance coverage including other license drivers.
