DVLA Withdraw Offensive Number Plates

October, 15 2009

Auctions DVLA

DVLA have removed two offensive personalised registrations from their upcoming auction.

The registrations, F4 GOT and D1 KES, could have fetched over £900 each.

A spokesperson for DVLA said, "DVLA has responsibility to ensure that the combinations used on registration marks do not cause general upset or offence."

"Having reviewed the appropriateness of the registration marks F4 GOT and D1 KES, we have withdrawn these marks from sale on the grounds of the clear potential offence they may cause."

Stonewall, the lesbian, gay and bisexual charity, welcomed the withdrawal of the registrations: "We welcome the action by the DVLA in ensuring that these potentially offensive items were withdrawn from sale. This kind of proactive action by the public authorities helps make Britain a more equal place."

National Numbers offers funny number plates and rude number plates that are fun but won't cause offense. Search for a personalised registration on our web site to see for yourself.
