Trailer Registration in Florida

If you own a used trailer under 2,000 pounds and do not have a certificate of title, you may provide the following documents to register your trailer instead:

  • Title registration from out of state or bill of sale signed by the former owner.

  • Weight slip, if the weight of the trailer does not appear on the registration.

  • Bill of sale including the Trailer Identification Number, year and make, and the state of origin if the vehicle is from a state that does not title or register trailers.

In Florida, used trailers under 2,000 pounds must display a valid license plate issued by the state. This is to prove that the trailer has a current registration from an owner in Florida. If the trailer is registered to the owner who is transferring it, you do not need to provide a bill of sale with the Trailer Identification Number and its license plate number.


If your trailer with a gross vehicle weight of under 2,000 pounds, you do not need a title, but trailers that weigh 2,000 pounds and over will require one.

If yo need more information about trailers give us a call.
