This form allows you to do a free check to ensure your own vehicle is on the Motor Insurance Database (MID).
If you need to check whether someone else’s vehicle is insured in the event of an accident please visit the
askMID ’Other Vehicle’ Look-up facility.
If you have a new policy or have recently made any changes to it, please note that the MID is not instantly updated with your policy record and may take a few days before being recorded on the MID.
The law on motor insurance has changed. If you own a vehicle and it is registered in your name, unless it has been declared as “off the road” with a Statutory Off
Road Notification (SORN) with the DVLA, it must be insured at all times.
As part of the Continuous Insurance Enforcement policy, a letter is sent to registered keepers if their vehicle is not on the MID and appears NOT to have insurance.
This will be enforced by way of a fixed penalty notice or prosecution if the vehicle continues to appear uninsured on the MID.
