VicRoads rejected numberplates

Rude and offensive: 2013’s best and worst rejected Victorian numberplates

VicRoads rejected numberplates

Designing a custom numberplate for your car could set you back $2000, so you would want to make sure you’re going to end up with something unique, creative, inspired and maybe a little cheeky.

VicRoads occasionally has to knock-back numberplate requests which are inappropriate or can contain a mixed message. Numberplates containing vulgar language and sexual or violent references are also deemed unacceptable. Examples of these are 4.KORK, ILYVAG and SHT2KL

Some motorists’ numberplate creations were rejected based on the notion that they could send a bad message to other drivers, such as WA2Q1, or mislead drivers by appearing to be affiliated with the government or a particular business.

Some creations can be difficult to decipher for many people, perhaps causing no offense at all. One example of this is URACEN. Unsurprisingly however, most proposed numberplates were rejected for inappropriate language.

Check out the Herald Sun’s 2013’s list of the most ridiculous, offensive and downright puzzling rejected numberplate proposals, and see if you can work out what they say.

What do you think of these customised number plate creations? Do you think VicRoads is taking a hardnosed approached to a bit of fun? Are you offended by these cryptic sexist, violent and vulgar plates?

    Well the thing is you see, it's so tiny. By the time they change to top gear they are in another state.

    There is NO way I would spend money on having my name or such on a number plate and when I see those that do I think "ego maniac"

    Don't dig why some wee folk would spend good kanga on them.
    Don't understand why they get off on them.
    They must have SHT4BRNS

    I agree. Especially the ones who call the car their own name! And once I saw one "Mummy". Give me a break! Like that person thought she has done something which most of the female population hasn't? I think people who personalise their number plates just have far too little going on in their lives.

    LOL, SHT4BRNS..... that is a good one. No, I don't think it is worth the money to get personalised number plates... although I did have a set when I lived in QLD for a while. I think our state governments have enough of our money in their coffers, which they fail to use on repairing our roads and creating the infrastructure that we desperately need for our growing population.

    As for "Happy Cyclist".... how do you feel about having number plates and paying rego, seeing as all the drivers are paying for your bike tracks and then you just use the roads, anyway?

    BTW I am a "casual happy cyclist". :)

    Only stupid wasteful government could employ a censor for something so trivial. Obviously satire and humour contravene the Misery Enforcement Act. However people must be silly also to pay out large sums required by a monopoly like government to sell these ego items. Just the usual farce.

    I've had personalised plates on my motorcycles since 1978. My current one says GUZZI.94. My wife has had HEL-001 since 1979. No big deal and not expensive. I think Helen's cost me $65 at the time.
    but
    WA appears to be the capital of personalised plates. One I saw frequently on the way to work said WOGWHEELS.

    They do give you something to read & pass the time, whilst stuck on our roads (or carparks) as we choose to call them!
