Before registering a trailer, the manufacturer must affix a vehicle plate to the trailer. The vehicle plate provides clear information to the registering authority, owner and general public that the trailer is ready for road use. The trailer plate also provides useful information about the specifications of the trailer. The vehicle plate must be affixed to the trailer in a position where it may be readily examined. The vehicle plate must be permanently affixed by pop rivets, hammer drive rivets or screws. Fixing plates with adhesives is not acceptable.

Requirements may vary slightly between the states. Please check with your local authority.
