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.
Its unusual given the number of licence plates which are banned by the Driver Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) for being sexual, discriminatory, or threatening.
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
