If you have a vehicle used for tourist, charter or long distance passenger services, you can apply for tourist vehicle plates.
The vehicle must seat more than 12 adult people and:
- have CBUS registration usage recorded
- have BUS shape recorded
- be aligned to an accredited operator under the Passenger Transport Act 1990.
Tourist vehicle (TV) plates are issued as a set of 2 number plates and are identified by the letters TV followed by 3 or 4 numbers printed in black on a yellow background.
Most Roads and Maritime service centres carry TV plates and they are issued on site following a successful application.
