I just went to register my VHF online and was astonished, after entering my details, to be told that I could complete the registration after they had sent me a letter through the post in about 5 days time!

They are undoubtedly making progress, but I get the feeling that they may not quite have fully engaged with the internet just yet . . .

I think all the Government websites work like that - Tax, VAT etc all do the same with the posted logon. I suppose it at least proves you have some connection with the address you have given.

Not tried the VHF online yet, but it sounds like it's easier to do your tax return online!

The car tax one was really simple, but then they have already sent you the ID document.
