Since 2005 it has been a legal requirement for all vehicles covered by a valid motor insurance policy to be recorded on the Motor Insurance Database (MID) by the policyholder, or their insurer/broker. In an effort to further reduce the number of uninsured drivers on UK roads, the Department for Transport will be introducing the new CIE scheme from Spring 2011. Under the scheme it will now be an offence to be the registered keeper of a vehicle which is uninsured.
Therefore remains the responsibility of the end user to ensure they are registered on the MID. It is normal practice for this service to be undertaken by your insurance company; however it is advisable to check your vehicles at www.askmid.com.
If any of the vehicles leased through us are found to be missing from the MID, the registered keeper (Ogilvie Fleet) will receive an advisory letter and, potentially, a £100 fixed penalty notice. In this event we will pay the fine on your behalf and recharge you together with an administration fee in line with your current charge structure for parking fines.
