Who thinks DVLA workers got this going? They have taken over.......

There are a limited number of numberplate combinations- by introducing a full word series of numberplates such as "HELLO" or "GOODBYE" the DVLA can earn extra revenue and the public can have another chance to purchase their ideal numberplate combination. such "vanity" plates will also help to clamp down on mis spaced and misrepresented numberplates which arise where the exact combination isn't available and the plate is distorted to be something it isn't

Even if they issued plates like GOODBYE or HELLO once they're sold people will be buying GO08 BYE (using a bolt in the centre of the 8 and perhaps squaring off one side to make that '0' look a little like a 'D'), Theres probably already H8 LLO out there as we speak...........

That wouldn't help stop mis spaced plates........................ IMHO of course! :roll:
