These licence plates were all rejected by ICBC last year

Think twice before you apply

In 2023, ICBC received a total of 9,500 slogan requests from B.C. drivers for personal license plates. 73 per cent of those were approved, while 27 percent were rejected.

Among the plates that were rejected include G0G0, FAST, IXLR8, NO LAG and OMG MOV.

Anything that might be derogatory, inappropriate, dealing with political issues, intellectual property, or violent and criminal actions are all grounds for rejection.
