This act exempts any new school bus (1) registered between August 1 and the start of the school year immediately following and (2) that has already been inspected, from further inspection until September of the next year. For example, a school bus registered August 15, 2011 and inspected before that date is exempt from regular annual inspections until September, 2012.
