STIAN_BJ69 VAN SNUB2_IMAGE002 A CUSTOMER rejected a new van after judging its number plate - which started BJ69 - 'too rude', comparing it to a sex position in the Kama Sutra. Bosses at van leasing firm Vanarama today (Wed) revealed details of the incident, saying they understood the customer's concerns that the number plate looked like it was suggesting something from the well-known sex manual. Chiefs at the firm have this week contacted the DVLA to raise the issue that BJ - short for 'Blow Job' - and 69 - a sex position in which couples perform oral sex on each other - was a 'bit much' for some customers. A spokesman said that the customer in question turned up to pick up their new van, a Nissan NV400, at its Birmingham showroom this week, but turned it down when they saw the numberplate.

Would you drive a car with the number plate BJ69?

Some people are going around with that registration – and the DVLA says it has no plans to change it.

The matter came to a head after a customer came forward with their complaints about being offered a van with the licence plate.

They rejected it from van rental company Vanarama, saying it was too rude.

Chiefs at the firm have now contacted the DVLA to raise the issue that BJ – short for Blow Job – and 69 – a sex position in which couples perform oral sex on each other – was a bit much for some customers.

A spokesman for the DVLA told Metro.co.uk: The vast majority of registration numbers are made available for general issue and for sale.

We consider the series in question to be suitable for release.

For 2019, some of the banned plates included BE19 END, BU19 GER, DO19 POO, and OR19 SMS.

How does vehicle licensing work?

Each car in the UK is given a unique number plate written with two letters, two numbers and then another three letters.

The first two letters indicate where a car was registered, so BJ indicates Birmingham.

New license plates are released on September 1 and March 1 every year.Read More – Source
