It seems to have a lot more old (no longer running) registrations than the old system. For instance, this system contains a load of Stevensons of Uttoxeter registrations that I don't think were on the old system.

I've also found it you search for a place Wilmslow it picks up things like Wilmslow Road on registrations but excludes any services operating via Wilmslow. Then even worse if you search for 'Macclesfield bus station' it displays all registrations containing 'Macclesfield' and 'bus station' in either their start or end point e.g. ones saying 'Burnley bus station' are displayed.

I was told do do this by the people downstairs, Why there can't just import the old system straight onto the new server.
Probably because the old system uses software that is no longer supported.

If you want to know something scary Microsoft have been telling us for years to stop using IE6 as it's no longer secure. However, most NHS trusts have IT systems built around IE6 so they still rely on IE6 as they can't afford to replace their existing systems.

Type in anything and press search. Then you can search dates! Only problem is you have to put in the operator name or area!

For Licence Type put: "Standard National"
Traffic Area:
Publication Type: N&P


Works quite well actually, a bit more of a pain in the rear but it is workable!
Tried everything u say freetoview33 but what ever I try it comes up with the same, sorry nothing matches your search.

Well not really, I just searched for Bristol. I admit it's not perfect! And the old system is much easier. But I can't see them changing it, so looks like we have to learn to live with it.

No we dont have to live with it, we complain. EMAIL: Self.service@otc.gsi.gov.uk

When I phone the main office in Leeds today that what there told me to do, send in the email and complain. Their said there have no control over that website as that is dealt with people upstairs, Seems there no to happy either.

This really is so poor. No problems whatsoever with the Companies House site but this?

I'm fine with sites being updated but every single feature of that old website should have been implemented into this.

I got an email back on Friday and I was asked to beta test something, so their are listening. It will not be the same as the old system but I think it will do.
