Might have something to do with this: [url="http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2012/mar/18/drivers-data-to-go-offshore"]DVLA & India[/url]

And looking at the dates, it's already in place...

As most Identity and Credit fraud seems to stem from information held in offshore call centres and data bases, with India being a notorious hotbed of this type of fraud, you really do wonder if the lunatics have taken over the asylum. I do my utmost not to deal with or speak to foreign call centres as I strongly object to UK companies cutting costs by farming out UK jobs to other countries. (Dont get me started on UK border control open door policy and the apparent ease with which any foreign national can legally work here and no I'm not racist just incredibly frustrated as I teach college to a generation of british kids with little or no prospects of finding decent paid employment).
Be very wary of the closure of local DVLA offices as Swansea are already saying they can't cope with more work load. Next stop New Delhi?

But don't worry, none of our bikes will be considered by the DNA for test certification.
Only one German BMW model listed and only one brit bike, Brough SS100. No one seems to have picked up on that yet.
