Trailer Registration Number Plate
Legal acrylic trailer registration plate, white background with black digits. Required when taking curtain trailers abroad, it must be fitted in addition to the standard rear yellow number plate. Western Towing is a registered number plate supplier.
The trailer registration plate must be displayed in addition to the registration plate of the towing vehicle. The appropriate location to affix this additional registration plate will vary from trailer to trailer. As such the regulations allow for some flexibility in displaying this additional plate.
Where possible the registration plate must be attached to the rear of the trailer with characters in the vertical position, and in a location as far as reasonably practical from the position of the registration plate of the towing vehicle. If it is not possible to attach the additional plate to the rear of the trailer, then a trailer registration plate must instead be displayed on both sides of the trailer. We include two sticky pads to attach the number plate to the trailer, alternatively, it can be drilled and screwed or bolted in place.
The plate must not be attached to the trailer in any way that may make the registration number or any of the characters of the number difficult to read.
The trailer registration plate must be visible in normal daylight and as such the retrofitting of lighting to the secondary, trailer registration plate is not required. This does not change the requirement to light the registration plate of the towing vehicle.
To avoid any risk of enforcement action abroad, it is recommended that the UK’s recognised distinguishing sign – ‘UK’ (rather than ‘GB’) – should always be displayed alongside a trailer registration plate. This should be a separate sign or sticker next to the trailer plate.
The UK sign or sticker must not be displayed on the trailer registration plate. This should be a separate sticker or sign next to the trailer plate.
Please Note: A trailer number plate can only be delivered to the Registered Keeper as shown on the form uploaded. If you would like to collect the number plate then we will need to see proof of ID.
