"Thus if you run a web app, best to check it in all the major browsers.."

True but primarily for application issues.

For HTTPS configuration, running a test for that specifically (eg Qualys server SSL test) and actually understanding its results is best.

In both cases, if you follow standards, there is a good chance you won't have any problem.

Clearly, the DVLA (or subcontracted entity) didn't do this, which is a big fail.
