 WHO IS ELIGIBLE:

  • Private and commercial motor vehicles operating for hire who transport

  • A school bus owned by a private contractor and operated under contract with the county to provide transportation to students attending county schools should be registered with a Commercial Bus plate, with the fee depending on the vehicle’s seating capacity. See Attorney Generals Opinion 15-53.

    mileage and seating capacity of any vehicle registering under this provision. In
