censoring combinations including OM63 WTF, SL14 AGS and BU63 GER :D

The DVLA has revealed a list of personalised licence plates it has banned for being in ‘poor taste’ – barring drivers from taking to the road in a vehicle adorned with plates spelling out rude words or controversial statements.

Staff sorted through thousands of possible combinations from the most recent ‘63’ plate to come up with the list. The resulting troublesome combinations will be banned from March next year, when the DVLA’s ‘14’ plates come into use.

Personalised plates beginning with the letters PR, SH and SL have proved the most problematic for the ‘14’ plates, with variants including PR14 CCK, SH14 TTY, SL14 AGS, SK14 NKY and SP14 STK among the first to be barred.

The fact the number “14” in the new plate can be made to look like the letters “I”, “A” or “H” is the root of the problem as a large number of potentially controversial terms or phrases feature these letters.

Other ‘14’ plates that will be blocked before ever coming in to use include, J14 HAD, TR14 DDS, AL14 LAH, CR14 PLE and BU14 SHT.
