So I was stoked when I locked in & paid for the personal plate YAMFZ10 for my Yamaha FZ-10. Been waiting for the notice that it has come in, instead I got a letter that it has been rejected for being a "common swear word" (see the letter below where I made the red star) WTF??!
My wife initially had the plate HER6 rejected as well. You can call or go in to the DMV and contest it. Hopefully you can find someone who isn't an a-hole or complete moron, and they will understand your explanation and approve it. Good luck!
