I managed to get a few of these but on my day in Hobart it just poured and made photography wet and difficult.

What's the reason for these buses to have a second plate fitted next to the number plate for ? Good examples here of some North Coast Bus&Coach bodywork. :P

It is a licence plate for a commercial passenger vehicle, taxis have them as well.

Basically they WERE (past tence - not required anymore) like an AREA plate. Some were OPEN plates allowing the operator (bus) to do CHARTERS anywhere in Tasmania. Depending on the numbers/letters, some were restricted to certain areas (dependent on STAR rating for the bus) and SOME (yellow ones) were for school buses. They generally were only 1*star rating for the bus (ie: ex MTT buses used as school buses) Apparently they have not been in use (or required) for a couple of years now. Basically, as skystar320 states:"charter plate" BUT some with restrictions. Hope that clears it up.

I think there was 4 (maybe) but definately three. Long time since I worked with a private operator.
