Check your vehicle is insured ?

Does your car have valid Insurance?

Driving a vehicle without valid Insurance is a motoring offence. Getting caught driving an uninsured vehicle can lead to financial fines, points on your driving licence or – in certain cases – imprisonement.

The AskMID website puts the importance of vehicle insurance very clearly “WARNING – If your vehicle details are NOT on the Motor Insurance Database you are at risk of being fined and facing court prosecution. You may also be stopped by the police and have your vehicle impounded, and possibly disposed of, if proof of insurance cannot be provided.”

Car Insurance Checker

The Motor Insurance Database can provide details regarding your vehicles insured status. The website AskMID has two sections. The first is for OWNERS of the specific vehicle being checked – in other words, if you own the vehicle you are entitled to check that you have valid insurance. The other is to check the insurance status of a THIRD PARTY – a vehicle that you do NOT own, maybe one that was involved in an accident with you.
