Quebec will allow drivers to buy vanity license plates, beginning in September 2015.
The personalized plates will probably cost between $100 and $250, said Mario Vaillancourt, a spokesperson for the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec.
Drivers will be allowed to choose a combination of up to seven numbers and letters.
Words in English and other languages will be allowed, Vaillancourt said.
But the SAAQ will have the power to reject requested combinations that are not “appropriate and respectful.”
That means no profanity or words with sexual connotations. Vaillancourt said the SAAQ is working on a list of forbidden words.
Transport Minister Sylvain Gaudreault announced the decision Thursday, noting there is a strong demand for personalized plates among Quebec drivers.
Most Canadian provinces and U.S. states have long allowed drivers to buy vanity plates.
