The DVLA seem to get rid of any remotely suggestive, offensive or rude ones.

However there's a brilliantly perverted one nearby me, but I'd best not post it in an open forum... the owner may track me down and, well, do the things his number plate suggests he likes to do... to me.

lol Didn't you read the article. It apparently looks like "SNOT" (can't say I saw that at frst glance)...which isn't the most offensive word in the world I'd think.

I don't see how the word snot is offensive! They don't want anyone to have a humourous number plate, unless you pay for a personalised one...

Rofl that's so lame. There's someone locally whos number plate says "HIS GAY" using various numbers/letters, can't remember. Provided much entertainment for the more immature of us on bored days at college

The DVLA have too much time on their hand. Reporting this kind of crap gives the right-wing brigade something to brag about when political correctness is brought to the table.

There’s nothing to brag about... surely any sensible person despairs at such madness?

True, but it's this kind of ridiculousness that tarnishes political correctness.

This is quiet amusing

But quite sad too. Now no one will have the fun of having 'snot' on their number plate...I always wanted a car with a plate like that...
