Trailer plates

Trailer plates must be displayed on all registered light trailers and light caravans. Exempt trailer plates are available for those trailers that don’t have to be registered.

Check if you need to register your light trailer or light caravan.

Trailer plates are provided when you registered your light trailer or light caravan.

If your light trailer is exempt from registration, you can purchase an Exempt Trailer Plate which is a duplicate of the registration number of the towing vehicle to enable easy identification of the vehicle.

  • Include blue characters on white background
  • starts from E56 000.
