Motor Data Solutions Ltd (MDS) is a privately owned company based in Sussex, specialising in the provision of MID services to the Motor Insurance industry.

We are an authorised supplier to many insurers, and are registered with the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB) as Delegated Authority (DA) 060.

MDS was formed in 2001 and, having outgrown both the Bristol and subsequent London offices, has now settled in its new home in Haywards Heath.

We operate in three main areas:


  • As an updating service for larger fleets, primarily for vehicle leasing companies and brokers, allowing them to support any of their customers with any insurer. Our outsourced approach to automating and auditing these fleets allows our clients to avoid the need for any of their staff to update the MID
  • As a turnkey solution for insurers for the MID, including interactions with the MIB, a help desk for the policyholders, policy management, vehicle data collection and reporting, user management, compliance and reporting
  • As an interface to the MID for those agencies (MGA’s, brokers, sub brokers) which underwrite on behalf of UK and offshore risk carriers but where there is no full cycle EDI solution available. As part of this interface, MDS can also arrange to collect vehicle lists from Motor Traders, which can be managed by the traders using their mobile devices with appropriate reporting flowing to the agency
