The DVLA makes £160m a year from registering personalized number plates

The DVLA offers tens of millions of registrations on its website and is said to make up to £160m a year from personalizing its own number plate Birmingham Live.

However, requests may be rejected if deemed rude or offensive.

License plates banned that year included the F22 KER, BA22 TRD, A22 HLE and TU22 URD.

Covid-themed plates were also blocked, including CO22 RNA, CO22 ONA and CO22 VD.

The DVLA has also banned two-color license plates. These are license plates that use additional colors to make the letters appear three-dimensional.

A DVLA spokesman said: “The vast majority of registration numbers are being made available, but the agency is withholding any combinations that may be offensive, embarrassing or distasteful.

“Many people enjoy displaying a personalized registration number and over 50 million registrations are available on our site with almost endless combinations to suit a person’s tastes, interests and budget.”
