The latest round of banned number plates has been revealed.
Officials from the DVLA have combed through all possible letter and number combos with the new 20 and 70-plates in an attempt to stop any problem plates from hitting the roads.
Dozens have been stopped, including 20 HEL, PR20 ZZY and FF20 KER, as well as SC20 TUM and VA70 GNA.
The DVLA focuses on banning sequences that could be deemed racist or politically offensive.
Other registrations that got banned earlier this year include BU20 GER, A20 RSE and M20 RON.
Drugs-related plates GA20 NJA, SM20 ACK and HA20 SH also got pulled from circulation this year.
The DVLA hosts specialist meetings twice a year specifically to identify potentially offensive plates.
Controversial numbers including LE70 ZRR, PO2O FTR, DR70 UGS, TE70 ROR, JH20 HAD and GO70 WAR also got stopped.
A spokesman said: “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.
“Many people enjoy displaying a personalised registration number and there are over 50m registrations available on our website with almost endless possibilities of combinations to suit a person’s taste, interests and budget.”
The Swansea-based agency makes up to £160m a year from personalised registrations plate sale, Wales Online reports.
But the numbering system introduced in 2000 left roads bosses bamboozled last year when the 69 plate came out in September.
Dozens managed to slip the net with drivers managing to bag plates including ME69 LOL, ME69 GAG, ME69 PSE, LV69 JZZ, BG69 WLY, SX69 DNG, The Sun reports.
Here are some of the plates deemed by the DVLA unsuitable to be released this year:
