Annual registrations of buses and coaches in New Zealand

New and ex-overseas, by weight, 1971–2016

Definitions

Registration is the process of adding a vehicle to the Motor Vehicle Register: a vehicle, whether new or used, must first be registered before it can be licensed to be used on the road.
Registration has been traditionally confused with licensing: registration is normally carried out only once in the lifetime of a vehicle, whereas licensing is generally renewed every six or twelve months.

New: vehicle has never been used.
Ex-overseas: vehicle has been used before, but not in New Zealand.

Commercial vehicles: A commercial vehicle is a vehicle designed primarily for the carriage of goods or passengers in a commercial capacity. This group is made up of the following types: goods van/truck/utility; bus; motor caravan, and special purpose vehicle.
