Motor Insurance Database (MID)

To comply with the 4th EU Motor Directive, the UK Government established the Motor Insurance Database. The database records the insurance details of all vehicles within the UK and is managed by the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB).

The Motor Vehicles (Compulsory Insurance) (Information Centre and Compensatory) Regulations 2003 place a legal requirement on fleet and motor trade policyholders to supply accurate and timely vehicle updates to the MID, or else face fines of up to £5,000.

Brokers and policyholders can update vehicle registrations via the Allianz Motor Insurance Database, which automatically updates the MID.

‘Immediate load of vehicle data' (within the Act)

DfT’s view was that the requirement to supply data ‘immediately’ would be interpreted by the courts as "the time taken by a person using reasonable efforts". "Reasonable efforts" would vary from case-to-case, but an acceptable range would typically be 10-14 days.
