Who runs AskMid?

The website of the DVLA has a direct link to AskMid. As a result, it is reasonable to assume that AskMid also provides official government information.

Nevertheless, it isn’t.

More specifically, the Motor Insurance Bureau, or MIB, is responsible for upkeep of the website. This organization was founded in 1946 with the express purpose of defending drivers involved in collisions with uninsured vehicles.

Despite being privately owned, it collaborates closely with the government. Importantly, for instance, it is supported by compelled insurance company contributions. You are actively defending yourself against financial disasters by paying your insurance premiums, with the insurance companies then remitting a portion of these fees to the MIB.

As a side note, the MIB continues to draw criticism for its cold calling. In actuality, these calls were made by spammers attempting to con drivers. The MIB has a great reputation and deserves praise.

How long does it take to show on askMID?

Does temporary car insurance show up on askMID? Yes. But it can take up to a week for the cover to show on the Motor Insurance Database.
