In NYS, a trailer normally must be registered and inspected. A non-commercial trailer is exempt from the requirement for liability insurance. A non-commercial trailer is covered under the liability insurance of the motor vehicle that tows the trailer.
A trailer must be registered. There are machines and other devices that are similar to trailers or that look like trailers that are exempt from the requirement to be registered. Read form form MV-274 (Trailer-type Vehicles Not Requiring Registration) for more information.
The requirements to register a trailer are the same as the requirements to register a motor vehicle except that:
The NYSDMV does not issue a title certificate if the trailer has an unladen weight of 999 pounds or less. The proof of ownership issued if the trailer has an unladen weight of 999 pounds or less is a transferable registration.
Proof of insurance is not required to register a non-commercial trailer.
The expiration date for a trailer registration is December 31. A trailer registration is issued for one year, not for two years.
An annual safety inspection is required for a trailer. A DMV-licensed inspection station that inspects passenger vehicles and other light-duty vehicles can inspect a trailer. The inspector will give you the inspection sticker. Carry the inspection sticker in the vehicle that tows the trailer.
