School Bus Passing Laws

In South Carolina:

  • You may not pass a bus from behind when its amber warning lights are on
  • Pass an oncoming bus with caution when its amber warning lights are on
  • On a two-lane road, you must stop for a bus in either direction when its red stop lights are on
  • On a multilane road (a road with two or more lanes in both directions, with or without a median separating them), you may pass on oncoming bus when its red stop lights are on, but must stop if you're behind a bus

In Georgia:

  • There is no law against passing a bus when its amber warning lights are on, though caution is advised
  • On most roads, regardless how many lanes, you must stop for a bus in either direction when its red stop lights are on
  • Only on multilane roads where opposite travel lanes are separated by a physical median may you pass a stopped bus in the oncoming direction, but must stop if you're behind a bus
