I thought coach is just UK / commonwealth vocabulary for bus.

Why would it be handled differently from a school bus?

I shouldn't be, the clerks at the tag office simply don't know how this all works and its a pretty uncommon procedure.

Generally coach refers to an different class of bus. Typical examples are MCI, Eagle, Prevost or Vanhool.

Yes, but should not be a separate class of vehicle for purpose of this thread topic.

since I was having trouble registering my bus, and at the time I thought it pertained specifically to the coach aspect of my bus & how the title is worded, is why I made a thread asking about coaches. This didn't turn out to be the case though.

It's pretty much up to the states licensing authority to determine vehicle classes.

Here in WA, a 1997 Chevy is in a different class than a 1957 Chevy. They are both 2 door Chevy passenger vehicles.

A school bus is constructed and used in a fairly different manner than a coach.

Looks like this is a “right place, right person” situation. I had a similar experience when I bought an antique truck with no available title. Easy peasy, get a bonded title, right? So I go to the insurance office and the lady says head over to the tag office and make sure there are no liens on the vehicle. I get there and walk up to the counter and explain the situation. This lady flat refuses to help in any way. She says what I am trying to do is illegal and basically threatens me. I’m standing there with my mouth hanging open when another woman comes over and asks if there’s a problem. I explain it all again. She says come right with me and prints out the entire title history of the truck and hands it over. When I get back to the insurance place, the agent is just like “Wow!”
