Thatcham have changed the Cat 5 Category to Cat S5 at the end of 2018 upgraded some of the requirements for S5. Before driver recognition tags had no hole for a split ring and therefore could not be carried on the driver’s key ring, making car owners carry the tag on their person. While this targeted car hijacking it became annoying for most drivers. The new S5 ADR tags are allowed to be attached to divers’ keys and this sees a shift of focus towards the more common relay theft, key cloning and OBD theft. To read more about this, Thatcham provide information on Cat S5 changes to their specification on their website.
