WHAT IS THE MOTOR INSURANCE DATA BASE(MID)
The Motor Insurance Database (MID) was set up by the insurance industry to help combat this crime, and the police are now the MID’s biggest customer, making over 3.8 million enquiries per month. The DVLA, with over 1 million enquiry transactions a month in support of their Electronic Vehicle Licensing operation, is the second largest user of the MID. The MID also helps the UK comply with the 4th EU Motor Insurance Directive, which requires that insurance details of all vehicles in member states can be easily accessed by a national information centre. In the UK, this role is carried out by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) via the UK Information Centre. If your vehicle is privately insured it will have already been entered onto the MID by your insurer. However, if you a commercial policyholder (including fleets, motor traders and taxi firms), YOU are responsible for regularly submitting information about your vehicles to the database.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – PLEASE READ
MOTOR INSURANCE DATABASE – 4th EU DIRECTIVE
What is changing?
From 4th February 2011, legislation requires the registered keeper of a vehicle to ensure insurance cover is maintained at all times, unless a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) has been made. If a vehicle is not on the Motor Insurance Database (MID), incorrect details are held or a SORN has not been declared, the registered keeper could face a penalty. The Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) and Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) will work in partnership to identify uninsured vehicles by comparing the DVLA vehicle records against those held on the MID. Registered keepers will be sent Insurance Advisory Letters highlighting that their vehicle(s) appear to be uninsured and warning they may be fined unless they take action. If keepers fail to comply with the advice set out in the letters they could face:
- a fixed penalty notice of £100
- their vehicle(s) being clamped, seized and disposed of
- a court prosecution with a maximum fine of £1,000
To avoid any of these outcomes, please continue to ensure you advise us of any vehicle changes immediately.
What you must disclose:
You, the policyholder, are required by law to notify us (your insurer) of ALL changes of vehicles (additions and deletions) under the following categories:
- Business and personal vehicles (must be disclosed). You are required to disclose details of all vehicles permanently owned by you (the policyholder). Please note that vehicles owned by spouse’s/employees are not covered by this insurance policy and therefore should not be notified to ourselves for the purpose of the MID.
- You must disclose all trade plate numbers.
- Details of all vehicles in your possession for sale, which are taxed and will be driven, used or parked on a road or public place.
- Passing through vehicles (not disclose able)
- Customer’s vehicles in your custody or control for motor trade purposes e.g. Repair / valet / servicing do not need to be disclosed. Please note however that if these are being driven under Trade Plate regulations, that the trade plate must be disclosed.All changes of vehicles (additions and deletions) must be notified immediately after the change occurs to allow for the information to be transmitted to and processed by the insurer and the updating of the MID within a reasonable period. Methods of communication Please provide the above information using one of the following options:
- By telephone on 02476 437 600
- By clicking the link above
Please note that a Motor Trade Road Risks policy does not provide cover for all vehicles or every eventuality and the submission of this information should not be regarded as an acceptance on our part that cover applies in respect of the registration number of the vehicle disclosed.
