The DVLA have announced that on last weeks ’16’ series release, over £1 million was spent in the first 20 minutes of the registrations going live.
A massive 3,576 number plates were sold at a cost of £2 million on the first day including £1 million in just the first 20 minutes of release alone.
The DVLA stated: “The vast majority of registration numbers are made available but we have a responsibility to ensure that the combinations used do not cause offence.
“We try to identify combinations that may cause offence and having considered the appropriateness of these registration numbers we have withdrawn them as they could cause offence or embarrassment on the grounds of political or racial sensitivities or are in poor taste.”
