Just keep a photocopy of your policy in the glove box, you will be fine if stopped by the police and show them this, they can the call your insurers to verify

In my van, out of the rat race
Insurers get (I think) 14 days to update the MID. But sometimes they can forget, a client of mine had a van impounded thanks to insurers forgetting, plus the driver only spoke Polish, to the Liverpudlian copper.
As per previous post, print a copy of your certificate and keep it in your wallet or the car. The police will ring the insurer to check it is legit.
