MIB annual report reveals impact of Operation Tutelage

The Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) has published its annual report and accounts for 2022, revealing that Operation Tutelage helped seize more than 123,000 uninsured vehicles last year. 

Under Operation Tutelage, MIB works with police forces across the country to check vehicles against police systems and the Motor Insurance Database to see whether they are insured. If not, a letter is sent to the registered keeper encouraging them to insure the vehicle. 

The organisation, which aims to reduce instances of uninsured driving, also revealed that almost 80% of uninsured drivers contacted as part of Operation Tutelage bought an insurance policy after the intervention. 

MIB chairman Mike Crane commented: “Operation Tutelage continued to make a significant difference in protecting people from the terrible cost of uninsured driving.” 

Dominic Clayden, chief executive officer of MIB, added: “I’m hugely proud of the progress MIB continues to make in protecting people from the devastation of uninsured and hit-and-run driving. And that, every day, our people are working to help their innocent victims rebuild their lives.” 

Last year, MIB helped more than 42,000 people injured by uninsured and hit-and-run drivers rebuild their lives.
