Oh dear, Big Brother raising its ugly head. If they sold it, tough. I know they "screen out" offensive plates but if went through the system, so what? They make an absolute fortune selling personalised plates and passing on information to insurance companies so I hope this bites them on the arse.
The best one I saw, though, was M1NGE. Wonder how much they ripped the owner of that one off for?

You didn't see M1NGE, you heard Clarkson talk about it on Top Gear like the rest of the world.
Wrong again so don't make assumptions. I saw that one at least 10 years ago and never, ever, watch Top Gear. He may, though, have copied it from me.
It may not exist now but it did the, a little sports type car if I remember correctly.

Steve Parrish ex gp bike rider and then truck racer used to have "pen 15" as his plate on a merc .
Never knew if it was genuine or not but most people used to snigger when they saw it



Kind regards

Mountain out of a molehill, DVLA are just being tossers and as for 'causing offence', who got offended is what I'd like to know. If they keep bitching the bloke can get a refund, simple as.

Is it Cuxhaven that has the prefix 'CU' on it's reggo plates followed by those two dots and the rest of the number?

I recall years ago seeing in an 'adult art magazine' readers letters page a picture of a boxhead reggo plate that was CU:NT 1234.

Made I larf but life was simpler in those days, very much like me.

A few years ago, I saw a Ferrari with a numberplate that spelt out the word 'pissed'. Just tried every combo I can think of on smudge's link though, and it's either been withdrawn or was fake to begin with!

If you go down the Google page you got that from you will see others have spotted it. However, as I said this was at least 10 years ago so it probably got picked up by the thought police and withdrawn.
Likewise, there used to be a Mini running about Middlesbrough with the registration OOO 000O. Clearly a special issue by DVLA as the O suffix wasn't normal. Not on mycarcheck, either scrapped or, more likely, withdrawn.

I'm afraid the case is clear cut.

If you need a personalised Registration, you're a throbber.
We called these "vanity" plates in my younger days.

And I enjoyed reminding my neighbour who had paid quite a sum for her "vanity" plate to get the initial letters of her name (AIB), that she would have had the same at the normal fee by simply applying to Coleraine (the Northern Ireland equivalent of Swansea at the time).

Not a chance, DVLA never issued any plates with O' Oscar letters in them, tiz the rules.
