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.

Order your plate

Available colours

Black text on white background

Please note, in the current climate we may experience unexpected delays.

While the Department will endeavour to deliver all number plates ordered prior to Friday 19 November at 4pm by Christmas, we recommend placing your order as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

You can also nominate a Service SA centre where you can personally collect the number plate from to reduce your waiting time.


Bike rack plates have a once off fee of $31.

Combination options

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.
