it seems that if you type in more than about 4 manual items in a row or more than about thirty letters it has a hissy fit.if you go out,click on any fail item then go back it generally accepts it no problem but as workrounds go its pretty s**te.you still end up typing the same thing twice and wasting time.think its a very basic attempt at stopping advisories,its pretty clear from the way they've modified the advise lists that their trying to stop us issuing them:X

yes I think your are right the old system did go down for a few days and making et test was a lot harder because you had to phone em and wait a very long time for et code . I have now to test day by day on paper or computer witch ever :dude:

Tom :)

Your getting highly stressed mate:)

Relax it's just DVSA getting their new system sorted, I am sure we had similar problems when Siemens was starting out with COMP I.

DVSA have advised that contingency testing will be with us now until about August 31st 2015:D

All I do now is check my email first thing in the morning, log the CT code and try to register my first vehicle, if the system is slow, like you say and does not operate as normal, I just shut it down and carry on using CT mode.

Issue a CT document and try to register the next vehicle, if it don't work, shut it down and carry on CT testing.

I must admit though that my understanding of CT back up is much more straight forward than the previous ET testing of COMP I, and as I get more familiar with the new COMP II system I am getting quit quick at working my way through the system, with the odd error code now and again, but overall when it works it is quick and easy to navigate round.

It's not all bad. :)

BETA This is a new service – your feedback will help us to improve it.
MOT testing service
Service unavailable
Due to planned maintenance the MOT testing service is currently unavailable.

Please try again later.
----------------------
I have received no notification email about maintenance.
Came in to straiten things out at my garage; enter up contingency tests on comp2 and enter them onto on my own garage system.
AND cannot do either...

Comp 2 slammed as ‘unfit for purpose’
LAST WEEK'S MOT MELTDOWN caused widespread chaos for garages using the new MOT testing service
