DMV: Request denied. Rejected personalized license plates.

Colorado drivers kept the Division of Motor Vehicles busy reviewing personalized license plate applications in 2023.

The DMV approved over 60,000 personalized plate applications in 2023, almost doubling the amount approved in 2022.

While thousands of applications were approved, plenty were rejected for being foul, lewd or rude requests. In total, the DMV reviewed and rejected over 1,000 personalized license plate configuration requests in 2023.

Rejected requests for license plate configurations, such as “GYATTT,” “GTJIGGY” and “OMGWTF” were added to the offensive-omit list, which the DMV uses to automatically reject most foul, lewd or rude requests.
