We recently launched a new online licensing system. The new system will enable us to provide a better service in future; however, there have been some unexpected technical issues with it. We are working hard to resolve these as fast as we can and we would ask that you please bear with us while we do this.

A lot of people have been in touch with us and we are trying very hard to respond to this demand for support. We are also keeping our 'Help and Guidance' page regularly updated with useful information.
