BRITAINS rudest number plate
BRITAIN’S rudest number plate is up for grabs – with a £6,000 price tag.
Despite resembling one of the most explicit words in the English language the reg is entirely legal.
Private number plate suppliers Absolute Reg are selling it after acquiring it from an anonymous individual.
Their managing director Jake Smith said: “We’ve seen a few weird and wonderful plates in our time but this one takes the biscuit.
“It’s very unusual for a plate like this to be available.”
The DVLA regularly ban number plates they deem offensive.
But this one appears to have slipped through their net.
Jake added: “The DVLA aren’t really fans of rude-sounding plates.
“Normally they will pull plates like this off the market before their release date but this one must have slipped through the net so the buyer need not worry.
“It’s completely legitimate.
“I think it’s fair to say this plate will probably attract a certain type of person, someone with a definite sense of humour, and we’re sure there will be a lot of interest.
“Even more so because of how rare it is.”
How much similar registration plates have sold for recently and in the past: it is always worth looking at what has been going on in the private registration plate market recently to add extra weight to the valuation of your own number plate. It is a market that is not immune from trends, so keep a close eye on what has been selling well and see if your plate has any similar features
The age of the plate: older plates tend to attract higher prices and dateless number plates (the first ones ever issued) normally call for the highest prices on the market
The plate’s rarity: if a lot of similar registration plates were issued, your plate may be less valuable. So, the relative rarity of older, dateless number plates makes them more valuable, as a whole, than newer, dated plates. Similarly, having a private plate with a word or name spelled out on it gives it a degree of rarity that would raise its value.
