Registration is required for all non-farm trailers operating on public highways. Registration and titling requirements vary according to trailer type and weight. Most utility trailers fall into two categories: Manufactured (built by a trailer manufacturer) or homemade (built by an individual in their garage or shop). In addition, trailers are categorized by gross weights (the trailer weight plus the weight it can carry) under and over 4,000 lbs 

If your manufactured trailer's gross weight exceeds 4,000 lbs., it must be titled. Trailers with a gross weight exceeding 4,500 lbs. must pass an annual safety inspection.

In some cases, you may be asked to provide additional information such as:

  • Weight Certificate, and/or
  • Photograph of trailer.
Trailers in excess of 34,000 lbs.
  • Must be titled and registered with Trailer license plates.
  • Do not qualify for Farm Trailer license plates.
