Trailer Number Plates | Required by Law | Number1Plates
To adhere to DVLA regulations, trailer number plates must display the registration of the vehicle that is towing it, with a legal registration plate made to British Standards (BS AU 145d). If you have multiple vehicles, you can purchase more than one trailer number plate and swap them to match the towing vehicle.

What are trailer number plate laws?
It’s important to know that if you have a commercial trailer that weighs more than 750kg, or a domestic one that weighs over 3,500kg then you must adhere to certain rules when you travel abroad. This means that you may need to register your trailer, and need to purchase a second number plate for it, that will be assigned to the trailer itself.
