The number plates, including the letters SP and LO, have really good potential for creating meaningful words to display on vehicle‘s. However some have a little too much meaning for sensitive officials at the DVLA, who have banned them from sale.
The registrations include potentially unpleasant combinations such as **59 ANK (spank), **59 ERM (sperm) and **59 EED (speed).
The subject of terrorism has also been censored from the registrations, with the reg’s *B10 GAS (bio gas) and *B10 WAR (bio war) being culled from the list of number plates for sale.
The DVLA regularly meets to discuss which registrations, if any, may be deemed offensive or inflammatory. In the past, the Government agency has pulled registrations such as BA57 ARD (bastard) and TE57 CLE (testicle); and also drug-related registrations such as EC57 ASY (ecstasy) and MY57 ASH (my stash).
Despite many number plates getting the chop, National Numbers has a collection of rude number plates and funny number plates that have escaped the eagle-eye of the censors at the DVLA. Give them a whirl!
