that would be my guess as well,how difficult is it to press a button and enter a number?the mere fact that they consider this more of a priority than answering peoples querys/concerns pretty much says it all for me.its known as displacement activity.what happens is the human brain when faced with distasteful problems or concerns will focus on summat less unpleasant and generally unrelated to the immediate problem in preference to actually facing said problems.this would of course imply dvsa acting like a living entity which given the blogs content gives us an immediate clue as to the location of the anus:shock:

Another thing we're doing is looking into ways we can securely reduce the number of times you need to enter your PIN every day, as we know this can be very time-consuming..

I have not seen one complaint from testers about passwords but you are prioritising this..

could it be that that smart cards are allergic to metal check the back of the card, mine is 2108801500030... could it be a cost cutting exercise?

locking devices is another,i use the search function rather than scoll thru(lets say)brakes,5 screens to get what you need,type lag/bind in and youre there instantly cos they are about the only ones you use right?type track in and all the track rod end fails come up,no securing device fail?oh well p+a.if you go thru the steering screen theres one for locking devices for(I think)steering linkage components and securing devices is on there tho seems a bit of a stretch and I only found it by accident cos if you use the search function you wont even see that screen.still aint found any lock devices for suspension ball joints tho,closest ive seen is likely to become detached but that's utterly inappropriate in most cases tho its also possible that theres yet another item/screen I aint noticed yet:shock:

then come out & go into 'pads' to get.. brake lining or pad wear indicator illuminated

significant step in the right direction:?
