Trailers manufactured after 29 October 2012
For trailers over 3,500kgs manufactured after this date, apply for permission to supply a large goods trailer for use on the road. You need to have evidence of type approval.
Once a trailer’s been in use for more than a year, book an annual test.
If it was used outside Great Britain for 12 months or more
If your trailer was manufactured after 29 October 2012 and was used outside of Great Britain for 12 months or more before you apply for a ‘letter of consent’ from DVSA, you also need to book an annual test after consent’s been issued.
