SHB 2612: Tow truck operators indicator tabs

What’s happening?

  • Registered tow truck operators have the option of choosing an indicator tab for their additional license types such as transporter, hulk hauler, wrecker etc., in lieu of the full size plate.
  • At renewal or initial application time, simply indicate how many indicator tabs you would like for each specific license type. Plates may still be purchased for those additional license types if you wish. The fee for the indicator tabs and the license plates are the same and are renewed yearly.
  • Indicator tabs are applied to the plate that is permanently affixed to the tow truck. Place indicator tabs on the top of the vehicle license plate above the plate number on the rear plate only.
  • Effective date: Monday, June 3, 2019.
