 On-Site Trailer Registration - Austrailers Queensland

Austrailers Queensland is the number on trailer manufacturer Brisbane & Queensland wide. When you purchase a trailer from us we can have your trailer registered on site within 10 minutes, ready for you to drive away.

If you already have a trailer, the steps listed below outline exactly what you will need to do to register a trailer in Queensland.

  

Before Registering Your Trailer

CTP Insurance

Before registering your trailer it’s important to check whether your trailer needs compulsory third party insurance (CTP). In most cases, the trailer is covered for CTP by the insurance of the towing vehicle, however, you will need to check with your CTP insurance provider to confirm this.

 

Pre-Registration Inspection

 Your trailer will also need a pre-registration inspection before it can be registered. The type of inspection your trailer needs will depend on its design and whether or not is has previously been registered in Australia.

 

  • Single Axle Trailers (ATM of 750kg or less)
    For single axle trailers with an ATM of 750kg or less, a self assessment compliance inspection is acceptable. This can be carried out by the trailer manufacturer, motor dealer, or operator.

  • Dual Axle Trailers (or with an ATM of more than 750kg)
    A compliance inspection is required for trailers with more than one axle or an ATM greater than 750kg. This inspection may be carried out at some transport and motoring customer service centres.  This inspection may also be conducted by an accredited person under the Heavy Vehicle Registration Assessment Scheme (HVRAS).

  • Imported Trailers
    A Department of Transport and Main Roads identity check inspection is required for the first registration of any imported trailer. This inspection can only be carried out at some transport and motoring customer service centres unless you live in a rural area.

  

Registering A Trailer In Queensland

Trailers used on Queensland roads must be registered. 

What You Will Need:

  • A valid for of ID (eg. a current drivers license)
  • Proof of the trailer's garaging address (eg. current QLD drivers license or gas/electricity/phone bills issued within the last 6 months)
    Note: The garaging address must be a Queensland address
  • The original copy of a current QLD safety certificate or certificate of inspection (for trailers with an ATM of more than 750kg unless the trailer is brand new)
    Note: Bring the original blue copy (for safety certificates) or pink copy (for a certificate of inspection) 
  • Registration Payment

You May Also Need:

  • A modifacation plate and certificate (if the trailer has been modified)
  • The relevant pre-registration inspection sheet
  • An unregistered vehicle permit (if the trailer needs to be moved for work to be done before registration)

Towing A Trailer To Be Registered 

If your trailer is currently registered in another state:

 To continue using your trailer in Queensland you will have 14 days to register it if it is currently registered in another state. After this time, fines may apply. 

If your trailer is currently unregistered:

 If your trailer is unregistered it will need to be towed to become registered. It is legal to tow an unregistered trailer only to get a safety certificate/certificate of inspection, and then to be registered.

To You are also legally allowed to tow your trailer back to the garaging address if it is not possible to register it at that time due to running out of time or other requirements needed to complete the registration.

When towing an unregistered trailer the number plate will need to be removed. If the number plate is still visible, fines may apply.

Note: Unregistered trailers can only be towed to apply for registration. You must have a completed vehicle registration application and a valid CTP insurance certificate with you. You must drive directly from the garaging address to the closest transport and motoring customer service centre (stopping only to get a safety certificate or certificate of inspection).

Trailer Inspection Checklist

Austrailers Queensland

If you own a trailer in Queensland, chances are that your trailer will require a safety certificate at some point. Whether you are selling your trailer or registering it after years without use, there are a few things you will need to check to pass the safety inspection.

  

When Is A Safety Certificate Required?

A safety certificate is required when a trailer is put up for sale or when registering an unregistered trailer. A safety certificate is also required if the registration of a trailer is being transferred between owners, states or territories.

 

How To Get A Safety Certificate

Trailers must pass a safety inspection at an authorised inspection station to obtain a safety certificate.

 

Trailer Inspection Checklist

 trailer inspection checklist

It is always a good idea to do a quick inspection of your trailer

before taking it to an authorised inspection trailer. This way you

won’t waste any time or money if your trailer is not fit to pass the

safety inspection.

 

The following is a list of items that will be checked during a

safety certificate inspection.

 

   

Tyres

Tyre condition is important for the safety of any vehicle. Heavily worn tyres can lose traction and cause accidents. To ensure that the tyres on your trailer will pass the safety inspection, check that:

  • Tyres are compatible with the rim to which they are fitted
  • All tyres on a single axle or axle group are of the same size
  • Tyre load ratings meet or exceed the minimum requirements specified by the trailer manufacturer
  • Tyre tread is not worn down past tread wear indicators around the whole circumference of the tyre
  • Valve stems on the tyre are not cracked damaged or loose
  • The sidewalls of any tyres in a dual tyre configuration do not touch


Wheels

To ensure that the wheels of your trailer will pass the safety inspection, check that:

  • Wheels on a single axle or axle group are the same size unless otherwise specified by the original trailer manufacturer
  • No stud or bolt holes have expanded or become elongated
  • No missing or broken wheel mounting nut, studs or bolts
  • Wheels are not cracked, corroded bent or buckled or otherwise damaged
  • Spoke wheel does not have any loose corroded, bent broken or otherwise damaged spokes
  • Spacer plates are fitted between the hub and wheel unless fitted by the original trailer manufacturer

Brakes

Maintaining the condition of the brakes on any trailer is essential when it comes to the safe on-road use of trailers. The brakes on a registered trailer in Queensland must conform to the Queensland trailer regulations. To ensure that the brakes of your trailer will pass a safety inspection, check that:

  • All brake components are securely mounted and not leaking
  • No brake cables are broken, frayed or otherwise damaged
  • Brake cables are secured to the trailer
  • No brake component is ceased, inoperative or worn beyond the manufacturer’s limits
  • All wiring for brakes is connected, secured and undamaged
  • If the gross trailer mass is between 0.75 and 2 tonnes, the trailer is equipped with an override or electric braking system that operates on a minimum of half the number of axles
  • If the gross trailer mass of the trailer exceeds 2 tonnes, the trailer is fitted with an effective breakaway system
  • Brake controls in the towing vehicle cause the corresponding brakes of the trailer to operate simultaneously

Lights

Before any inspection, check that all lights are in working order. Hook the trailer up to the towing vehicle in order to inspect the working condition of your trailer lights including brake lights, indicators and reverse lights. Check that:

  • No light has been tinted or masked with an opaque cover
  • All lighting components are clearly visible and are not affected by dirt or discolouration
  • All lights are free from crack, holes or similar damage that would allow moisture or dirt to affect the working condition of the light
  • With the exception of reverse lights, all lights facing towards the rear of the vehicle do not display white light
  • There are no flashing lights fitted to the trailer with the exception of indicators and hazard lights

Doors

  • Doors are securely fitted and mounted and operating correctly
  • Doors are not cracked, broken, distorted, corroded or weakened to the point where failure is likely to occur


Body

  • Frame components are not cracked, sagged, broken, distorted, missing or corroded
  • Fastenings and welds between frame components are secured and are not cracked or distorted
  • Body is securely mounted to frame
  • Any repairs retain the original strength of the component
  • No sharp edges or protrusions that would increase the risk of injury to anyone who comes into contact with the vehicle
  • Anchorage points are undamaged and if repairs have been made, maintain original strength


Mudguards

  • Mudguards are secure
  • Mudguards are able to deflect mud, water, stones and any other substance thrown upward by wheels
  • Mudguards are fitted to provide protection over full width of tyres and wheels

Number plates

  • Number plates covers are not tinted or reflective. Number plates are not concave or convex and do not affect visual photographic recognition of the registration
  • Number plate is not deteriorated, faded or damaged to be illegible from a distance of 20m
  • Number plate is not modified or trimmed in any way
  • Number plate is not mounted more than 130 cm from the ground
  • Number plate is mounted parallel to the axles of the vehicle when the vehicle is on level ground
  • Registration number is issued or approved by a state or territory road transport authority


Couplings

  • All coupling devices and connectors are fully operational and secured. They are not cracked, corroded, excessively worn, leaking, deformed or damaged in a way likely to cause failure
  • Tow couplings are securely mounted to the drawbar
  • Drawbar is securely fixed to trailer frame/chassis
  • Sliding drawbar stops and latching mechanisms are fully operational
  • Name or trademark of manufacturer is clearly displayed on coupling including maximum operating capacity
