About Direct

History of Direct

Direct Auto Insurance was founded on April 10, 1991 by William Adair. Mr. Adair envisioned a premier, non-standard automobile insurance company that served its customers better than any other insurer. Since then, Direct has rapidly expanded across the Southeast, providing customers with low rates, flexible payment plans, and the great service they deserve, regardless of their driving history.

Direct Auto is proud to be part of the Allstate family, but our story begins back in 1991. When Direct Auto Insurance opened its doors in Nashville, Tennessee, its mission was to serve all customers (regardless of their driving, insurance, or credit history) better than the competition.

During our journey, we joined forces with SafeAuto, and became a part of National General, an Allstate company, helping us continue to provide our customers with the low rates, flexible payment plans, and great services they deserve.

Direct's Services & Products

Along with affordable car and motorcycle insurance, Direct Auto Insurance also offers term life insurance, roadside assistance memberships, vehicle protection plans, and in a limited number of store locations, Mexico Auto Insurance.

Direct Auto Insurance specializes in providing non-standard auto insurance for those who may be considered “high-risk,” or who are in need of SR-22 certification.

What’s more, you don’t need to have a checking account or credit card in order to get coverage with Direct Auto Insurance. While you can certainly pay by debit or credit card, you can also pay with an e-check or pay cash.
