If you don’t want to get your car seized by the Policy for not being show on the Motor Insurance Database [MID] you should always carry evidence of your insurance with you.

Continuous Insurance Enforcement has grown up from European Legislation and this has led to creation of certain databases that interested parties have access to.


Information relating to your policy 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 certain statutory and/or authorised bodies including the police, the DVLA, the DVA, the Insurance Fraud Bureau and other bodies permitted by law for the purposes not limited to but including:-


  • Electronic Licensing
  • Continuous Insurance Enforcement
  • Law Enforcement (prevention, detection, apprehension and or prosecution of offenders)
  • The provision of government services and or other services aid at reducing the level and incidence of uninsured driving
If you are involved in a road traffic accident (either in the UK, the EEA or certain other territories), insurers and the MIB may search the MID to obtain relevant information. Persons (including his or her appointed representatives) perusing 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 correct registration number. If this is incorrectly shown on the MID you are at risk of having your vehicle seized by the Police. You can check that your correct registration number details are shown on the MID at
