Agricultural Trailers

Updated: 04/11/2012

Minimum Requirements for Safe Use

Many pieces of agricultural equipment are classified as agricultural trailers if they travel on the road network.

Agricultural trailers are exempt from the requirement to be registered or meet the standards for registration.

However, these exemptions do not remove the obligation of the operator to ensure the trailer, and any combination of vehicles it is part of, is safe and roadworthy.

This information bulletin provides a practical set of safety standards to apply to unregistered agricultural trailers that will facilitate safe road travel.
