Registering a car: official website woes multiplied
Registering a UK car here can only be done online via the ANTS site. Finding the correct place on the site is fairly easy.
However, when one tries to upload requested documents – such as the C5, proof of ownership – one receives a message that the document exceeds 1MB and attempts to minimise the size of the documents are refused as they are “dangerous”.
I spent hours trying to find a solution but decided to pass the task to one of the agencies that advertises this service and claims a 15-minute result.
I have had several such experiences with French government websites which leads me to feel that they do not test them properly before opening them to the public.
