Who is my van insured with?
We all lead busy lives, so it’s not unheard of for people to forget who they are insured by. If this does happen there are ways to find out who your van is insured with:
- Check your emails, as you would probably have received a confirmation email with your policy details. Search for words like ‘car insurance’ and ‘insurance policy’ in your inbox
- Check your bank statements. The name of the insurer should be on your direct debit or when you made your annual payment
- Check your personal papers. Your insurer may have sent a hard copy of your policy and cover details through the post, although not every company might do this
You can check if your vehicle is insured by going to askMID.com (Motor Insurance Database). You can check your own vehicle for free.
If you need to find out who someone else is insured with after an accident, the service is also free and can be accessed on your mobile on the road side.
It is worth remembering that it is illegal to drive or keep a vehicle without insurance; the legal minimum requirement is third party insurance on your van.
If your motor is not officially declared ‘off the road’ with a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) and it is registered in your name then it must be insured at all times – even if you have not used it for a long period of time.

It is always recommended that you keep your insurance details in a safe place, whether in your home or in digital format.
