In the UK they've stopped issuing licence discs completely now. It's all done online, and the police can check immediately with the equipment in their cars whether your vehicle is licensed or not.Here's an idea...
CT should allow you to print the license directly.
When stopped, police can use a "scanner" (i.e. cell phone camera) to validate the license bar code/QR code.
That's exactly what happened to me when I tried to apply online. I went through the renewal process online and then nothing. No email, no follow up, nothing. Just radio silence. I've emailed them 5 times trying to follow up. Nothing, nada, zip. Just an automated canned response.This: 11. You will receive an e-mail with a payment advice, reflecting the licence fee due, the City’s bank details and a nine-digit reference number within two working days
Absolute hogwash. I did all the necessary and submitted a renewal on the 17th of February. I am yet to receive the said email. I also since queried it via email with the licensing department and supplied them with my reference number. I received an automated reply that acknowledged receipt of the email and nothing else since.
What is the point of having these IT systems in place if the support is not there on the back end to handle it?
