The database the Police use can be found athttp://www.askmid.com/
The site itself is just a frontend, it interrogates the MIB database just as the Police do from their vehicles.
If your vehicle shows as being uninsured and you know that it isn't, time to shout lots at your insurance company :j

Never heard of this site before. Most of, and if not all vehicle checks are done through PNC and most (but not all which is why some folk get stopped for insurance checks) insurance companies submit the details to PNC. In car computers - more commonly ANPR are linked to PNC and details obtained automatically from that.
Still a useful site to know about though.

As far as I am aware, insurers do not submit any details to PNC as such. They submit data to the MID (Motor Insurance Database), which is run by the Motor Insurers' Information Centre. This is then made available to the police.

Does that mean I have been uninsured for all the time I have been paying this company, and will I now face a fine/ban from the Police?
No complaints about the Police, but I'm not happy at all with this company. I wonder what would have happened if I had an accident in these circumstances. Would I be covered or would they be able to fob me off?

People can argue you should have noticed, but to be honest I don't even open the envelopes. I just see them and think "car insurance" and shove them in the right box in case at some future and random date I need it.
