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.”
The UK in particular has a relationship with personalised number plates. According to estimates by the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency), the UK reported an excess of two billion pounds in tax revenue from tax auctions over the past 25 years. As they are keen to state, an expression of interest in a particular plate by three people or more is enough to push the price of that Reg plate through the roof. It has also been documented that the buyers let their hearts take control of their heads when they bid for these plates.
Personalised number plate auctions are constantly rewriting the record books with regard to the highest price paid for a plate. The record currently stands at £518,000 which is quite impressive. The prices of these Regplates does not seem to be slowing down either.
Of particular interest is the recent auction of the highly-hyped 250 C Reg plate which sold for £21,500. This is a clear indication that the expectations for the prices of personalised number plates will continue to increase.
