Banned '14' vehicle registrations

DVLA banned list
Quote
Staff at the roads regulator have sifted through thousands of potentially offensive combinations to rule on which risque combinations should not be allowed.

This includes such variations such as PR14 CCK, SH14 TTY, SP14 STK, SL14 AGS and SK14 NKY.

You've either got to have quite an imagination or the plates are illegally made. Why don't they simply crack down on those illegal plates.
I think the best I saw was 5 ECY when two screws placed near the C made it look like an X.
Wonder if 1 MAV is available Cheesy
What personalised plate would you like to own?

Re: Banned '14' vehicle registrations

If I had a car (which for various reasons will probably never happen) I'd have the reg "Rich 1", then again probably not, it would attract unwanted attention from people on the scrounge.

Seriously though, the last thing I'd spend money on is a personalised plate.

I couldn't even think of a personised number plate without doing the test.
I'd have to get a BMW and forget how indicators work.
Too much hassle for me. Cheesy

It happens my ex-SWMBO has P***LEW on her runabout VW Golf. I've demanded first refusal if she ever decides to sell or scrap it.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Banned '14' vehicle registrations

I worked for a company a few years ago where the 'rather rich' owner, his wife and their two sons all had posh cars and personalised plates, on all of their many cars. Longer serving staff also had personalised plates and gradually everyone who joined seemed to feel an uncontrollable urge to 'join the club'.
I've never seen so many cars with personalised plates in a car park but It was actually quite amusing watching the young workers turn up in rusty old bangers having spent most of their hard earned minimum wage on personalised plates !
Needless to say I remained one of the few not to invest.

Re: Banned '14' vehicle registrations

When I spent a lot of time driving in Central London I saw a lot of the special number plates.
NO5, NCB1, VIP1 and a lot of the embassy, high commissioner cars like IND1 & CAN1
Best ever was when driving through a town in Hertfordshire and a Mercedes coupe came the other way with the plate PEN15  Smiley
To cap it all it was being driven by a very attractive female.

Right, who'll be the first person in this thread to be banned for avoidance of the swear filter Tongue
I've seen one around Mayfair (where I work). I can't remember exactly how it is formed, which is probably a good thing as it spells a not very flattering 4 letter word.
