Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE) InformationRegulations were signed by Parliament on Friday 4th February 2011 and it is now an offence to be a registered keeper of a vehicle which is not covered by insurance and not on the MID (Motor Insurance Database). This applies even if the vehicle is not being used/driven on the road. How does this work? The DVLA and the MIB (Motor Insurance Bureau) are currently working together to identify any uninsured vehicles by comparing the record each keeps on their own databases. Under the CIE the registered keeper of a vehicle is responsible for the insurance and making sure it is in place. The first set of letters will be sent in June 2011 if any vehicles are not on the MID. If a letter is received, the vehicle keeper will be asked to update their DVLA record, declare SORN (Statutory Off Road Notice) or purchase insurance. This will not apply in Northern Ireland as they have their own licensing authority and the decision to adopt CIE has not yet been taken.
