UK DVLA Bans Every ’73’ Number Plate, Including BE73 END and FA73 DCK

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has released a comprehensive list of all banned ’73’ number plates, which includes notable combinations like BE73 END and FA73 DCK.

Every year, two sets of number plates are issued, with the ’23’ plates being released in March and the ’73’ plates scheduled for September.

Given the sheer volume of over one million plates released each time, it’s not surprising that some combinations of letters and numbers inadvertently spell offensive words or phrases.

To ensure road safety and prevent any potential controversies, the DVLA proactively identifies and bans a group of number plates that are deemed too offensive.

Jon Kirkbright, the sales director at Platehunter, a specialist in private number plates trading, filed a Freedom of Information request to the DVLA ahead of the upcoming ’73’ release. This request aimed to uncover the exact list of banned plates by the government agency.

The exclusive list contains understandably offensive combinations such as BO73 LOX, HA73 GAY, LE73 ZZA, SH73 TER, and WH73 PWR.

Jon commented on the banned plates, stating, “Given the large number of plates being released simultaneously, it’s no surprise that some are not suitable for public display. However, some are on the borderline, but I understand why the DVLA chooses to exercise extra caution. They are simply safeguarding a significant source of revenue.”

According to Jon, the biannual number plate releases also bring forth thousands of sought-after combinations, with names consistently being the most popular choice.

He predicted that plates like EL73NOR, AN73ONY, and FA73EMA would be in high demand among the new releases. Currently, these plates are being sold for prices ranging from £4,995 to £7,995.

With 11 years of experience and a vast inventory of over 56 million personalised number plates, Platehunter prides itself on offering affordable options, starting from as low as £39 plus VAT and transfer fees.

Jon added, “Names always sell exceptionally well. People want to personalise their vehicles with their own name or initials, and this market is continuously growing in popularity. We’ve noticed an increasing number of individuals purchasing personalised plates for themselves, their children, or even their business vehicles.”

Each new release is met with excitement as it allows drivers to acquire plates that have never been available before. While pre-ordering is not an option, Platehunter strives to fulfill 95% of customer inquiries regarding specific plates.

For those in search of a registration plate, Platehunter encourages browsing their website. Jon further stated, “If customers can’t find what they’re looking for, they can provide us with their specifications, and we’ll notify them if the desired plate becomes available. We can also obtain any legal and previously unissued number plate from the DVLA for auction.”
