Funny Number Plates You Can Actually Buy in the UK

A funny or rude number plate is an attention grabbing statement for your vehicle. You can turn heads, show off your personality, or put a smile on someone’s face. 

Humour is subjective and, naturally, some people may think these plates are in poor taste. If you don’t like rude words, read on with caution!

Often, these combinations happen by accident, and pass by the DVLA without getting banned. 

All the number plates in this list are real, genuine and available to buy from Absolute Reg. Read on to discover our favourites…

Which number plates are banned by the DVLA?

Every year, new number plates get banned by the DVLA. That’s because, as new plates get released in March and September, they create new offensive combinations. 

For example, in 2023, the prefix AN73 was banned because it could read as ‘ANTI’ or ‘ANY’. Equally, HA73 can be read as ‘HATES’. More shocking combinations include AS73 HOL, BU73 SHT, and EA73 DCK.
