To Whom it May Concern,
While attempting to book a Level G road test this evening, I was presented with a "Waiting" page featuring terrible looking animated GIF images. After waiting over 60 seconds (the comical standard procedure prescribed by said loading message), my credit card information and appointment booking were not posted to the server. After another two attempts, I took a quick glance at the source code for the "waiting" page (located at /scripts/waiting.asp), I saw that there was a single script, which attempted to call window.navigate() - not an actual method in commonly used web browsers. I simply copied the URL from that failed method call, entered it into the location bar and was taken to the confirmation page.
To put icing on the unpleasant cake, someone has taken it upon themselves to add a message to the authentication page, which recommends that users use the Internet Explorer 6 web browser - a browser known worldwide for its security flaws and inadequacy, and is not available to Mac and Linux users. While I am sure you are aware, I feel that I must remind you that Internet Explorer 6 is 9 years old, and has been banned in a number of countries. In short, the web browser DriveTest recommends is the same web browser that has repeatedly been used in large scale cyber-warfare attacks, more than any other web browser ever made.
I expect nothing short of confirmation that the DriveTest website is being rewritten. If this is not the case, you're not doing your job.
Hey, even Google is ending support for IE6.
