Dealer Loan Car

My Nissan dealer is to provide a loan car when mine is being repaired. They have requested my National Insurance Number. During these times of identity theft I wonder if it is government legislation which says I should provide this information or just the dealer requirement? I feel it would be wiser not to let them have my N.I. number on their records. Hope you can advise. Thank You.
