Bike Rack Plate

If you have a bicycle rack attached to the back of your car – you'll need a bike rack number plate.

A bike rack plate must be displayed if a bicycle rack obscures your rear number plate. If your rear number plate is not easily visible, you are driving illegally.

Plate combinations and sizes

The bike rack number plate is attached to the top of the bike rack. The number is the same as your vehicle plate number but it has black lettering on a white reflective background with the slogan 'SA cycle instead' on the bottom of the number plate.
