Why a school bus sign?

School bus signs increase pupils awareness when travelling to and from schools, also the awareness to the presence of school buses, and in turn, the possible presence of pupils.

Safety is paramount when it comes to awareness and we feel that at Signet Play it is important to talk about why school bus signs are important.

What type of school bus sign is available?

Sizes of a school bus sign can vary depending on the vehicle. The material is usually rigid plastic or vinyl. These can be magnetic, face-adhesive or permanent self–adhesive, with the option of reflective and non-reflective material.

What size & placement rules are there for school bus signs?

School Bus Signs

School bus signs must be applied to the front and rear of the school bus in accordance with the Road Vehicles Lighting (Amendment) Regulations 1994.  They are mandatory from 1st April 1995.

Front: The smallest size the bus sign can be for the front is 250 x 250mm
Rear: The smallest size the bus sign can be for the rear is 400 x 400mm

Buses and coaches used for journeys to and from school are required to display distinctive retro-reflective yellow school bus signs fitted to the front and rear of the bus.
Specifically, signs at the front of the vehicle must be at least 250 x 250mm with a black border of not more than 20mm wide, and at the rear of the vehicle at least 400 x 400mm with a black border of not more than 30mm.

Can we have a choice of colours?

Short answer… No.

There are certain rules when it comes to a school bus sign.

The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulation of 1994 require all school buses to apply yellow as the colour for the school bus sign, and must be affixed to the front and rear of the vehicle.
You can have the option of reflective and non–reflective, but each sign requires a black border around the edges and the colour must be yellow.

Where there are not many colour options, we can advise you on the right size and materials.
