Downright cheeky or innovative? Either way, this Perth license plate has become a sensation for its attention-grabbing plate.

At first glance, the plate displaying 37OHSSV may seem ordinary, almost inconspicuous, but there’s more than meets the eye.

The surprising plate quickly gained online attention, with over 2000 shares and nearly 1000 comments, mostly applauding the vehicle owner’s cleverness.

According to Perth Now, there are plenty plate submissions that have been turned down in just the last 12 months and among those were GEN3CID, SAUC3D, and RAMP4GE.

One particularly mischievous one — F4K3 T4X1 — alludes to a risqué website, while BUYAGRAM was linked to purchasing drugs.

The majority of customised plate holders are men, accounting for 71 per cent of the market, with an average age of 41.
