The Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) works in partnership with Experian to manage the Motor Insurance Database (MID) and the MIDportal on behalf of the insurance industry. The MID was introduced to combat the problem of uninsured driving and the associated costs to insurers and, ultimately, to all policyholders.
The MID is the central record of all insured vehicles in the UK. It is used by the Police and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to enforce motor insurance laws. MIB shares the information on the database with the information held at the DVLA, to identify uninsured vehicles, under the Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE) scheme. Enforcement agencies and the police have the power to remove uninsured vehicles from UK roads.
You can find out more about the MID, and services provided by the MIB at www.mib.org.uk.
Authorised users at Insurance companies (and their representatives) use the MIDportal to view details of motor insurance policies on the MID and perform other MID related tasks.
** Please note that as a policyholder you should add your 3 or 6 digit user ID prefix in the first part of the login box entitled Insurer/DA code. **
Authorised fleet operators and motor traders (and their agents) use the MIDportal to submit vehicle data to the Motor Insurance Database and to view details of their motor insurance policies.
Commercial policyholders should contact their insurer for further information on how to submit vehicle data to the MID via this method.
The MIDportal is the new way to access services previously offered via MIDCheck and MIDUpdate. If you are a current user then you will know what you can do.
A migration plan is currently running to move insurers and users to the new MIDportal.
Until your insurance company has migrated, you will continue to use the old MIDCheck or MIDUpdate; after migration you will be redirected to the new MIDportal website.
