The MID is the central record of all insured vehicles in the UK. It is managed by the MIB and is used by the Police and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to enforce motor insurance laws.
Information on potentially uninsured vehicles, which includes fleet vehicles that have not been added to the MID but should have been, is provided regularly to the police to feed into their Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) network. When a potentially uninsured vehicle passes an ANPR camera the police are alerted and the driver may be stopped. If the vehicle and policy details are not up to date, it may be seized.
Unicorn manages its MID obligations in partnership with Motor Data Solutions, the market leader in handling MID requirements on behalf of Fleet operators. When you take out a Policy with Unicorn, MDS will contact you to provide a secure log on to the dedicated Unicorn portal and guide you through the entering of your vehicle details.
