    Vehicle Tax - a cock-up online

    It's that time of year and I'm overdue getting my free road tax.

    Got my V11D form and MOT. Tried renewing it online and now I need a letter of entitlement letter which will supply a special code. The letter will take up to 10 working days to arrive - I don't believe how long it takes to do stuff onine - I might just visit the good old Post Office to get it done there and then!

    Technology benefits not always clear cut, lines becoming blurred on occasions. Online applications often too stringent and kacking any degree of flexibility.

    This is spot on. A valid point well made. Perhaps the authorities will take note.

    Never had a problem taxing ours online. The certificate number is yours for as long as you are eligible.

    Complexities of advanced computer programmes making user interface unduly cumbersome. Causes stress and anxiety and upset too.
