According to the District’s municipal regulations, no tags are allowed that are profane or “offensive to the general public.” The city’s DMV also doesn’t allow drivers to use tags that refer to “race, religion, color, deity, ethnic heritage, gender, sexual orientation, disability status or political affiliation.” 


This meant that DC drivers seeking plates that said “45SHOLE,” “DUMP45” and “TRE45SON” were all out of luck last year.

Other political tags like “4OBAMA” and “GOVOTE” were also not allowed, as were religious ones like “4ULORD,” “PSALM23” and “YESGOD,” according to Washingtonian, which acquired the list of plate names through a Freedom of Information Act Request. 

District DMV spokeswoman Vanessa E. Newton told Washingtonian that customers can dispute a rejected vanity plate application, and it will be reviewed by local administrators.
