Hi, Johnny,

For about 40 days this year, my shop (formerly Gold-Shield), was not locked out from certifying 'directed' vehicles by the VLT (or VID, whatever). We turned away many dozens of vehicles with 'directed' paperwork, but certified several dozen with no paperwork, not recognizing the glitch until seeing the 'HEP' inspection reason on the VIR. The lock out was finally triggered last month, and I'm sure that there are many non-STAR certified shops that could relate a similar story.

Take care, buddy.
