School buses

School bus plates expire in June every five years and receive month, year and vehicle inspection stickers. Place the June month sticker in the lower left corner of the plate; place the year sticker in the lower right corner. The vehicle inspector will place the inspection sticker to the left of the plate number.

When used for non-school transportation, a school bus must obtain charter bus registration and a combined year/month sticker. Place the year/month sticker to the left of the plate numbers and above the vehicle inspection sticker.


Applicable plate type:

  • Motor bu​s (with BSB school bus registration) - BUS
