It has a printout of the vehicle details - VIN, GVM, make/model/colour, licence expiry date. They're colour-coded - registrations that expire in 2010, for example, are on green stickers and in 2011 are on orange.

Since these things are largely redundant in the days of character-recognising cameras, Western Australia and South Australia no longer use them. I'm sure the others will phase them out soon.

You can see my green label in this old pic of my bike, fixed only semi-legally depending on your interpretation of "adjacent".
