DVLA ban ‘offensive’ reg plates
More than 400 number plates have been banned from use as part of the new “68” vehicle registrations.
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) are holding back those that “may cause offence, embarrassment or are in poor taste”.
Motorists often get creative with personalised plates to spell out words.
The “68” registrations, which became available on September 1, caused a number of issues for the DVLA, as the six can represent B, G, C or S, while the eight can be used as a B.
Banned plates include BA68 TAD and OR68 ASM.
