How to remove a vehicle from mid database

The UK’s central source for storing car, van and motorcycle insurance details, is the Motor Insurance Database, or MID.

How does an insurance claim affect my No Claims Bonus?

The no claims bonus can be one of the most controversial areas of your private or motor trade insurance policy. On the face of it, the idea is simple. Car and van drivers who avoid accidents, and thus do not make insurance claims, are rewarded by a lower premium. Even after a one year without a claim significant savings begin to be made, but after this, the benefits can really rack up.
