The Dept of Transport has advised that it will “retire” or close the Bush Fire Service plate scheme because the number of plates being taken up is no longer viable.
The DoT will close the series within the month (14 March 2012), after which BFS plates will no longer be available.
Eddie van Rijnswoud will endeavour to process any last minute applications from members who may be contemplating purchasing a set of plates. The current cost is $205.00. Please contact Eddie at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
Those who currently own BFS plates will in the future be able to transfer them to other vehicles or order replacements for plates that have been lost, stolen or damaged. These transactions are to be completed directly between the owner and the DoT.
