Trailer parked on road with no number plate

Recommended Posts

Kev627

In a neighbouring street there is a man who runs a mobile disco and has a trailer he uses to carry his kit between venues. Most days the trailer is parked on the road outside his house but only about 50% of this time is it displaying a number plate. Is this legal?

Yes. It’s not a motor vehicle in and of itself so it doesn’t need a plate.

More to the point, why do you ask?

My wife thought she'd read that all vehicles parked on the road needed to display a registration plate for insurance reasons should vehicle be involved in a collision.

Motor vehicles, not all vehicles. Otherwise that would include horse drawn carts, bicycles, hand carts etc.

Motor vehicles yes. A trailer isn’t a motor vehicle.

Trailers aren’t insurable taxable entities of themselves. They only show reg plates because when they are hitched they conceal the plate of the vehicle they are hitched to.
