In early January, I came across a list from the Idaho Transportation Department of the rejected license plates from the previous year. They were hilarious. I'm sure some of the plate applicants thought they were being clever enough to get their idea approved, but I'm also certain that most of these had no belief that the plate would become a reality. They only put in the application because they thought it would be funny.

Why Personalized License Plates Get Rejected In Idaho

To get your personalized license plate approved in Idaho it can't be offensive, vulgar, or hateful. Most of the above plates are pretty clear as to why they were rejected and for others you have to look at them in reverse to make sense.

  • FKNEWS - Fake News, not the other 'F' word
  • DYRTRDS - Dirt Roads
  • PB4WEGO - Pee Before We Go
  • HLLBLLY - Hillbilly
  • BAD69SS - Could be referencing an awesome/bad '69 SS Camaro, Chevelle, El Camino, Nova, or other muscle cars
  • GAMERAFK - AFK could mean 'Away From Keyboard' or reference the game AFK Arena
