One of Each

Well I know I said there may be adult concepts, but never thought that children’s eyes would have to be shielded from licence plates. I’ve been holding coc and ass for 2 weeks while I chased a cnt. Great relief when I finally got one yesterday.

    Pure. Gold.


  2. Levon says:

    It gets even better when you realise there’s the possibility of there being a thousand (or 999) of each out there. A thousand “coc”s, “cnt”s and “ass”s… but doesn’t it feel like there are more “cnt”s on the streets of Perth than a thousand?


  3. Juffy says:

    Ooooh the tailgating jokes will be flying thick and fast. Or should that be 1THK and 1FST.


  4. Ophuph Hucksake says:

    Mmmm, only about a year before the plates start with ‘D’

    Can’t wait.


  5. This would make a great TWOP T shirt


  6. adam1975 says:

    I once saw a car at some hot rod show with the number plate ASSH – 01. Took me a few seconds to get it.

    I wonder if they do a 1COK?


  7. Juffy says:

    LA – I can see it now.

    “1COC, 1CNT, 1ASS – WA, the State of Excitement”


  8. Frank Calabrese says:

    I wonder if the WA Police will call these regos over their radio network normally or Phonetically ? :-)

    Of course there is still 1FUC, 1FUK and 1TIT to come :-)

    plus you forgot 1ARS :-)


  9. I’ve got 1ASO as in “Ai ya, you are Aussie Aso isn’t it?” but I thought ASS was better.


  10. Bento says:

    I remember when they first introduced these plates, the govt said they would vet them to ensure that no offensive letter combinations got through (I think 1ABO was a particular concern that was raised by the ever-altruistic Sunday Slimes).

    Praise Jebus they seem to have abandoned that idea. I for one find my day improved immeasurably whenever I see an 1ASS, 1COC or 1CNT.


  11. Mez says:

    good to see the CNT is wearing fishnets


  12. Mez says:

    and I bet the COC is driving a Forester


  13. I got caught photographing the COC. I said I just liked the numberplate.


  14. Someone should send a link of this post to anyone who might be outraged. Always good for a few hits. Maybe Alannah can get a please explain.


  15. Juffy says:

    Frank – could get a bit confusing, if you radio Charlie Oscar Charlie there’s 3COC instead of 1.


  16. James N says:

    You should have waited until after 1FUK, LA. You’ve brought their mistake to their attention and they’re going to filter the thousand 1FUK’ers out of circulation before we get a chance to truly enjoy them.

    It’s college humor, but some of the best laughs are.

    1ASS… how could they have missed that one? Surely someone saw that coming. Maybe they decided to keep quiet about it until it was too late in order to share the laughs with the wider public.


  17. GWS says:

    Nice work. If I can find it I’ll send you a photo of my license plate from the states when I lived there in the mid 90s.
    U-WANK, told the licensing people in New Hampshire that it stood for the University of WA, North Kambalda.


  18. Martin says:

    I saw a guy in a huge black luxury sedan with a vanity plate that simply said ‘PALESTINE’.

    Creeped me out more than cnt or coc ever will. A friend of mine has ‘box’ though, kudos to him.


  19. Quog says:

    Not particularly rude, but my sister has 1COW which she thinks is real hoot.


  20. Pierre says:

    I personally can’t wait for the V’s. Put me down for 1VAJ to go with my 1COC.


  21. Mez says:

    Curse you LA! I spent the whole day driving around looking at blue and white number plates and almost crashed twice on the Freeway (“I’m sorry officer but I was looking for a COC”).
    The best I could come up with was BUB and BXM
    That’s U as in oo


  22. The Intellectual Bogan says:

    Had an XF Fairmont for a while that was 1APR. The car was a bit of a joke too, if your sense of humour was particularly sadistic.


  23. Frank Calabrese says:

    And what of those geeks who had 1AOL ? :-)


  24. Nettie says:

    Not rude at all but my little Rolla GTi has the number plates GIVEWAY. I know there’s not many people out there in this country who respect 4 cylinders so I get laughed at a lot (usually by guys driving hotted up Falcons and Commodores) but I really don’t give a shit. My little Rolla rocks!


  25. Frank Calabrese says:

    The Next challenge is to find one of those plates on a police vehicle, and hopefully in the future one will have the plate 1PIG, or more immediately, 1COP.


  26. SkyLantern says:

    Re: #7

    Yes, they do. When I bought a car a couple of years ago I was relieved that my numberplate lottery had a ‘normal’ result. The plates were in the Cs at the time and I joked to the dealer that I wouldn’t want something like 1COK. He laughed (I assume salesmen are trained to laugh at customers’ lame jokes) and assured me that those sort of combinations don’t get through the system. I didn’t think any more of it until a few months ago when I actually saw a car with 1COK. Sorry I don’t have photo evidence LA.


  27. Jack says:

    I have heard that the plates 1ABO ### and 1BMW ### were never made, if someone sees one post a picture I would like to be proved wrong. I wonder what other plate combinations that are due will never be made. My prediction is that we never see 1FAG ###.


  28. Quog says:

    Jack: what about 1BUM ?


  29. Vic says:

    A Falcon I saw in the North had the rego plate 1COK469.

    In the early days of Victorian personalised plates (early 80’s) someone I knew owned a red MG with the plates RU 469.

    And we’re only considering the English language here.


  30. Schmeedle says:

    We have a 1CNT number plate at work, and two that are 1CRP.


  31. Acanthus says:

    I get endless amusement from such combinations as 1AFK (god, I’d hope so, at the wheel), 1BRB, 1CGF and such.

    Er, I just outed myself as a massive dork. But maybe by the time I can afford a new car, I’ll be in the running for 1FTW. Sweet.


  32. We have 1Cnt and 1Coc at work.


  33. Mazarina says:

    Only one of each LA? Your workplace sounds great!


  34. 1Cnt is the bosses car, so I had to search for a different one to take a picture of. He maintains it stands for 1Cent.


  35. Mazarina says:

    He lives in denial! Unfortunately, there seem to be an abundance of cocs and cnts in most other places (need to be diplomatic in how i word this!)…


  36. skink says:

    my wife bought a new car recently and was told the 1COK plates had just been superseded, so she received a plate with 1COW instead.


  37. BrownBook says:

    Uh-oh, I’ve just ordered a new car. Should I hope for a COC, COK or CNT? Probably too early for 1LOL or 1PWN…


  38. Frank Calabrese says:

    or 1 POO or 1POF :-)


  39. I think you’ll just be in time for 1EMO


  40. Del Quant says:

    Licensing Services clearly didn’t think this one through. It’s just not statistically possible in Perth for a 1CNT plate to be telling the full story if the driver decided to car pool.


  41. Rofl Ahrris says:

    Hey ¡¡ thats what weve been looking for so long!!!! finally found it.!

    what about 1CUN713??? (cuntie) and 1CUN769 AND 1COK569 1 TIT569 (STILL TO COME)
    we are currently looking for 1CUM569 or 1CUM666


  42. The Legend 101 says:

    Is That bottom numberplate from Dianella? because i saw a Ute driving down Alexander Drive with that one last year.


  43. Hels04 says:

    Saw three cops get out of an unmarked car in Geraldton – 1DOG
    Was going to take photo but they didn’t look like any of them had a sense of humour!?
