Delaware Banned License Plates

Delaware Banned License Plates

The vanity license plate is the main proof of the vehicle and its owner registration in Delaware. Also, vanity tags are one of the custom plates that Delaware DMV suggests.

This kind of tag presents a unique combination of five to seven elements, including letters, digits, hyphens, and spaces. But, the Division of Motor Vehicles and the Dover Administrative Office can reject some of those tags that have offensive meaning.

These two organizations supervise to judge any illegal or offensive combination of license plates people apply. So, Delaware banned license plates play an important role in driving and owning a vehicle.
