Note that you can replace the {0,1} with ?. Both mean zero or one times. And the {6,6} and {3,3} can be replaced with {6} and {3} respectively. {6,6} means any number of times from 6 to 6. {6} means exactly 6 times.

You can use the java class java.util.regex.Matcher to validate a string to that pattern.
