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.”
“Once you’ve bagged that number plate – if it’s a good one it adds value to it. Some are iconic and will be sought after. Some of the best are simple but exquisite.”
The biggest went for £180,000 in May last year – for KR15 HNA – which was a new British record for the most expensive current style personalised registration plate.
Today, plates with just one number and two letters cost an estimated £60,000, 20 times more than the early 1990s, when drivers could expect to pay somewhere between £3,000 to £5,000.
A DVLA spokesman said: “Many people enjoy displaying a personalised registration number and the general sale and auctions remain extremely popular with the public.
“Since we began selling personalised registrations we have raised around £2.3 billion and all the money raised is passed to the Treasury.”
