Partly historical and partly a way to distinguish buses and coaches from general issue plates on other vehicles.The MO system has been operating from the early 1920'S.TV plates came later on as a way of distinguishing regular service and school buses(on Metropolitan m/o and country MO plates)from vehicles used on tourist vehicle services.It's a bit more blurred these days,with many tourist vehicles on general issue plates and some country school buses also on general issue plates.

In view of the current disinterest by RMS in uniformity, I wonder if they will simply do away with them altogether?

Given that TV 9649 has recently been issued to Telfords, we are looking at no more than 350 plates being made before TV 9999 is reached.

Is there any word yet on what will happen at that point.??

There stlll remain a lot of gaps between different series of TV plates issued at different registries.So it will still be while before a possible change.
