Done with vanity plates

After previously getting '13 BOSS' denied for my car the DMV, in it's wisdom, has now decided to also deny my 'BOSSFTW' application.

I think I'm done with these f*ckers. I'll try it again some day when I don't live in California anymore.
 
When I first ventured on the the internet and saw FTW, I thought it meant **** The World like all the gangbangers get tattooed on them. I couldn't figure out why people kept posting it in what seemed inappropriate places.
 
Nowadays the 'For The Win' meaning is by far the most common one.
Guess I'll save my money for a track key rather than vanity plates. Maybe I'll try it again some day when I live in another state than CA...

that sucks. can you get FTHEDMV?

I did see H8ND405...

But I'm also frustrated with the process. Can't use numbers for letters, '69' anywhere is a nono unless your car is a 1969...I suspect anything with 'F' is looked at strongly. Maybe I should try for 'FU BOSS'. ;)

You can search online on DMV's website for personalized plates and then order them on the spot if it says they are available....save yourself some headaches...
 
That just shows it is not taken and that it doesn't violate the hard rules (no 69, etc) but it can still be denied later. FWIW BOSS302 shows as available in CA but when you put the order through it won't let you have it.

I have noticed that also. CA has you go through the whole procedure of trying to purchase a plate, including inputing your cc info, and at the very end, the requested plate may not be available.

However, before, you close the browser, you can check the availability of other combinations and know if they are available right away.

Good to know, though I doubt I will be getting another one. You can also be denied down the road even if they take your money.

My ex lost a bet so I ordered a set of plates for her that basically translated to I suck you know what in her native language. When they showed up she backed out and refused to put them on her car. But it was worth the cost just because I teased her about "bust a deal, face the wheel" for about 6 months straight. Then we broke up. Still worth it.
