SQL Server Query Regular Expression

Last Modified: 2015-03-24
I am looking for the best way to filter records from a SQL Table that do not match a regular expression.

I have a field in my DB called DriverNumber  the data should look like....E1234.  

I have the regular expression ^([ES]{1})([0-9]{4})$  

I would like to make a view in my database that displays all rows that the field DriverNumber does not match the above expression.  

I eventually will be displaying this data in Visual Studio Gridview.

Any ideas?
