Number plates are required for your trailer – especially if you’re planning on towing a trailer with your vehicle on British roads.
Do I Need To Buy A Separate Number Plate For A Trailer?
Trailer plates must show the vehicle’s registration towing the trailer, with a legal registration plate produced per British Standards, to comply with DVLA regulations (BS AU 145d). You can purchase more than one number plate for your trailer – this is especially useful if you have multiple vehicles and need to swap plates to match the vehicle you’re towing it with.
What Size Are Trailer Number Plates?
We have a huge range of trailer number plates in stock. We can meet any of the requirements that you have, from premium acrylic to pressed aluminium. You can use our standard UK car number plates (520mm x 111mm) or our 4X4 plates (280mm x 203mm) for your trailer number plate. Prices start at just £9.99.
If you use your trailer for company purposes, our lipped range makes for perfect trailer number plates. The added area at the bottom of the number plate makes it easy for your business name, logo, number, or other information to be legally placed on your plate.
What are trailer number plate laws?
It’s important to know that when you travel abroad if you have a commercial trailer weighing more than 750 kg, or a domestic trailer weighing more than 3,500 kg, you must adhere to certain rules. This means that your trailer may need to be registered, and you need to buy a second number plate for it, which will be assigned to the trailer itself.

We know that it is not ideal to submit your documents to us, but you need to get new road legal number plates. If you want to buy your trailer number plates from a supplier who does not ask for these records, they will have illegally sold them to you, and it is very unlikely that British Standards will have been adhered to.
