Car insurance up to date?

Your car could be seized and crushed if you have not kept your car insurance up to date. Is your car on the MIB Motor Insurance Database? This Manners Pimblett article looks at the ASKMID website and its function in allowing car owners to check if their insurance is in date.

Check your car insurance data online

A simple visit to the ASKMID website with VRN will allow you to check if your car is insured. Apart from the odd administrative mistake and you not having a valid insurance policy on your car, then there should be no reason why your car is not listed on the Motor Insurance Database.

Where does the data come from?

A useful company was established back in 1946 by the then major insurance companies. The sole purpose of the Motor Insurers' Bureau or MIB is to enter into agreements with Governments to compensate motorist like you and I that are injured or could be injured by uninsured motorists and car owners. The ASKMID facility is a product of the Motor Insurers' Information Centre.

What happens if my car is uninsured?

Expect a fine between £100 and £1000. If you drive your vehicle whilst it is uninsured expect it to be seized and taken to be crushed. New law is being brought in to give the power to seize and crush all uninsured vehicles. If you have an accident that you cause injuries to others and you are uninsured you add to your victim's misery.
