Spoilsport DVLA ban rude number plates
Censors at the Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency meet twice a year to decide which combinations need blocking. Also on the list are anything that might spell out 'bum', 'arse', 'slags', 'drugs' and, bizarrely, 'bonk'.
One specific ban is a plate that would read 'BB11 TCH'. You can't have anything ending in 'KOK' either.
The DVLA also take umbrage with terrorist phrases like HO57AGE, and MU11 AHS.
Irritatingly, you are allowed to have WTF and LMFAO, which is far most irritating and offensive than 'bum'.
A spokesman for the DVLA said: “We have a responsibility to ensure that the combinations used do not cause offence.” Christ knows what these motoring prudes think of 'honk if you bonk' stickers.
