When Can You Pass a School Bus?

With the school year in full swing, you have no doubt noticed that school buses are back on the road. With high court costs and fines, officers seeking to catch motorists who illegally pass school buses, and D.A.’s Offices unwilling to reduce charges for illegally passing a school bus, it pays to know when you can and cannot pass a school bus. 

Fortunately, the North Carolina DMV has provided drivers with guidance on when passing a school bus is legal and when it is not. This information is available in handy chart form:

There is more information available at the DMV website. Learn these rules now, so you can avoid a trip to the courthouse and a costly fine for not stopping for a stopped school bus.
