Many people will pay thousands of pounds to have a personalised number plate on their car.
While most opt for their name, initials or even a quickly nickname, there are some people who want something a bit different.
But there are a large selection of number plates which the DVLA have actually banned in the UK.
Some look like rude or offensive words, but others are just completely inappropriate.
Many of the banned plates are specific to the year, so if the date letters makes it look rude, but others are banned automatically with every new batch, reports the Express .
Combos automatically banned include:
- B** UMS
- FA** RTY
- CR** APS.
Examples of 2018 plates which were banned:

- AT18 TTY
- AD18 OLF
- 18 OOB
- BB18 JOB
- BO18 CKS
- BR18 ERY

Other more general plates banned in the last few years include:

A DVLA spokesman told the Express : "The vast majority of registration numbers are made available but the Agency holds back any combinations that may cause offence, embarrassment or are in poor taste.
"Every year a list of number plates are banned for being deemed to be too offensive or inappropriate.
"Many people enjoy displaying a personalised registration number and there are over 50 million registrations available on our website with almost endless possibilities of combinations to suit a person’s taste, interests and budget with prices starting at just £250."
