Trailer Registration

Irrespective of the Brexit outcome trailers exceeding 750Kg maximum authorised mass owned by a UK operator and travellong to most of Europe, with the exception of Cyprus, Malta, Republic of Ireland and Spain, must now be registered seperately with the DVLA. Registration is only available via website. Once registration is completed an electronic notice is issued followed by a registration document which remains valid for 10 years. Additionally a registration mark is assigned to the trailer which consists of one letter followed by seven numbers. The registered keeper or user must then affix a plate bearing this number, in black on a white background to the rear of the trailer as well as the registration plate of the prime mover.
