Motor Insurance Database

Information relating to motor insurance policies will be added to the Motor Insurance Database (MID) managed by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). MID and the data stored on it may be used by Insurers, the Police, DVLA/DVANI, the Insurance Fraud Bureau or other bodies permitted by law for purposes including, but not limited to:

  • Electronic Vehicle Licensing;

  • Continuous Insurance Enforcement;

  • Law enforcement (prevention, detection, apprehension and or prosecution of offenders);

  • Obtaining information if you are involved in a road traffic accident (either in the UK, the EEA or certain other territories).

Persons (including his or her appointed representatives) pursuing a claim in respect of a road traffic accident (including citizens of other countries) may also obtain relevant information which is held on the MID.

It is vital that the MID holds your current registration number. If it is incorrectly shown on the MID you are at risk of having your vehicle seized.

You can check that your correct registration number details are shown on the MID at www.askmid.com.

How we protect your information

Firewalls are used to block unauthorised traffic to the servers and the actual servers are locked in a secure location which can only be accessed by authorised personnel.

Call Charges

The cost of calling an '03' number will vary for each telephone company, but legislation requires the cost of calls to be no more than calling an '01' or '02' number and to be included in any 'bundled' minutes in your mobile phone contract. You can read more here: https://www.gov.uk/call-charges
