    Default Spotted: Custom plates

    Apparently it's time to start a thread about spotting custom license plates.

    Just spotted a custom OILERS plate with an Edmonton surround on a car in Prince Edward Island! LoL!

    He's definitely brand loyal.

    Though the plate would look better on @rage2 's Miata.

    I don’t think they’ll allow a plate that looks similar to another.

    Correct. All letters are available, but, they have rules where you can't substitute a number for what would be a letter on a custom plate. For example, "B3YOND" would be rejected, as would be "1NL1NE".

    At least that was how it was explained to me when I was looking into it. Perhaps @dannie could shed some more light as our resident expert.

    I got "HAGGI5" and "HAGG15" rejected as "HAGGIS" was already issued

    Yeah, their rules are frustrating. There was a guy with a plate like B8BB88B or something that I always thought "great job, guys! No one will ever be able to accurately name that plate to police of there was an incident because the B's look like 8's and vice versa". Similar to YVVYVY or something.
    Oh well...

    You cannot get the letter O.
    It is a zero.

    This

    Itís also pretty frustrating because you will get tickets because the meter maid never puts the 0 in correctly and it comes up as you not paying.

    I got in regular fights with UofC parking over it.

    Something to deal with now that I am using my Vanity plate again.

    You are correct my friend. They cannot be in alignment with government issued plates (ie: abc 123), cannot be on our do not issue list and cannot be a version of one that is already issued publicly.

    If I wanted to get a plate that would align with a government issue WAAAAAYYYY into the future (think along the lines of ZZZ-9999) would that still be a no-go?

    We're already there for ZZZ-1111 lolololol. Sooooooo nope. That being said, GOA has their anticipated use plates planned out for years ahead.
