Tag, Not It: Alabama's rejected license plates

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Looking for a new license plate option in Alabama? You'll have plenty of choices when you get in line, as the Heart of Dixie offers your heart's desire when it comes to vanity plates. There are more choices than every state except West Virginia.

But before you roll into the probate office thinking you're the legend of license plate language, you might want to tap the brakes. Just because you can spell it in a clever manner doesn't mean it'll pass muster with the Alabama Revenue Department, or other cars on the interstate.

There are more than 240,000 personalized plates on Alabama roads. People try to get creative, but the system is designed to catch it.

Sometimes offensive plates make it through the first line of defense, but before it's approved, a review committee at the Department of Revenue has to give it the okay.

To date there are more than 6,000 license plates that the state will never allow you to bolt to your ride. It includes things like the letter F followed by AU or BAMA, SHOOTEM, NOGOD and the word DIE. You also can't have D-1-E, because that also reads as Die.

While we can't show you every single banned plate (after all, there is a reason why they're banned...), we pulled together a list of some of the more honkworthy options. Take a look in our Rejected license plates slideshow.
