The Chronicle - - National -

MORE than 400 num­ber plates have been banned from use un­der the new “68” ve­hi­cle reg­is­tra­tions.

The Driver and Ve­hi­cle Li­cens­ing Agency (DVLA) is hold­ing back com­bi­na­tions it feels “may cause of­fence, em­bar­rass­ment or are in poor taste”.

Per­son­alised plates can see 6 be­ing used as a B, G, C or S, while 8 can rep­re­sent B. Be­cause of this, the DVLA has banned 436 plates, in­clud­ing **68 OMB, *A68 USE, BA68 TAD, OR68 ASM, as well as the po­ten­tially po­lit­i­cal mes­sage EU68 BAD.
