California License Plate Revoked by Nevada DMV: GOBK2CA

A vehicle owner in Nevada had his license plate rejected by the Department of Motor Vehicles for telling Californians to leave and return home. 

“GOBK2CA,” short for “Go Back to California,” was recalled by the DMV in May. The recall happened after the DMV obtained a complaint about it being a defamatory statement. 

The owner is now seeking to appeal and is scheduled for a hearing Wednesday. 

The Defamed Group is Californians

Between 2019 and 2022, over 117,590 Californians fled the Golden State for the Silver State, as part of the mass exodus. 

The cost of living in Nevada remains more affordable than in California, which has higher tax rates; on the other hand, Nevada’s tax rates are more lenient, making it easier to manage. 

The arrival of Californians caused a shift in Nevada’s political landscape, though. Democrats have seen a surge in growth within the state government, which is primarily the now progressively dominant legislature. 

During the 2022 midterm elections, Republicans lost a series of races in the Silver State, including in both Nevada state legislative bodies. The Nevada Senate has 13 Democrats compared to eight Republicans, while the Nevada House is 28 Democrats and 14 GOP members.  

The GOP also suffered nationally, due to the new progressive undertones. For instance, Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto won her race for office against Republican Adam Laxalt.

DMV Spokesman: Board of Bureaucrats Tasked With Regularly Rejecting Such License Plates 

According to DMV spokesperson Eli Rohl, the defamed group in this case is Californians.

Rohl stated the DMV regularly rejects license plates with similar messages. It even has a special committee review content, either approving it or striking it down if a statute is found to be violated.  

Throughout July 2022 to early March 2023, the DMV reviewed more than 700 license plates, including ones like “GGGGGG,” “U 1D1OT,” and several explicit references to profanity.
