These are the 2018 vehicle number plates banned by the DVLA

March 13, 2018

For those looking for a nice personal touch to make their beloved vehicle stand out in a crowd, you can always splash out on a number plate.

But don’t be fooled into thinking you can get any number plate you want – these aren’t bumper stickers.

Wales Online has reported that scores of personalised plates are completely banned for being a risk to the decency of other motorists.

The decision as to what should and shouldn’t be banned is made by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) in a meeting convened twice a year, ahead of each biannual plate change.

Anything with ‘BNP’ is banned

Censors decide which plates should be banned due to their explicit nature or potential to be offensive for political, racial or religious reasons, including anything ending in BNP, referring to the British National Party.

If a would-be banned plate does slip through the net, the DVLA has the power to force its removal and replacement with a new registration.

Plates can be banned regardless of whether they are standard or personalised.

According to , prohibited plates include JE55 US, 15 LAM, OS55 AMA and AD13 CTS, along with any plate which could have political connotations like EU16 OUT, EU16 GON and anything containing BNP.

A DVLA spokeswoman said: “There’s nothing scientific about it, it’s all done by taste, and if some slip through and we get a complaint we take the feedback on board.”

The new ’18’ plates have meant a whole new range of number plates have been completely banned.
