Raunchy sounding number plate won’t be banned by DVLA despite complaints

A raunchy sounding number plate won't be banned by DVLA despite complaints about its rudeness.

One starting with BJ69 was deemed 'too rude' by a van leasing firm, comparing it to a sex position in the Kama Sutra.

Bosses at firm Vanarama revealed details of an incident in which a customer refused to use the van based on the suggestive number plate.

Chiefs at the firm contacted the DVLA to raise the issue that the plate was a 'bit much' for some customers.

A spokesman said that the customer in question turned up to pick up their new van, a Nissan NV400, at its Birmingham showroom this week, but turned it down.

However, the plate was considered "suitable for release" by the government body along with others such as ORG4SM and SHA66R are also allowed to remain on the database.

Speaking to Metro , a spokesperson said: “The vast majority of registration numbers are made available for general issue and for sale. 

“We consider the series in question to be suitable for release.”

However, some naughty number plates didn't quite make the cut – with BE19 END and DO19 POO deemed unacceptable in the yearly registration.

Some of the rude plates on sale also include: 

ME69 LOL

ME69 GAG

ME69 PSE

LV69 JZZ

BG69 WLY

SX69 DNG
