Chapter 14: Permanent Trailer Identification (PTI)
Chapter 14 Permanent Trailer Identification (PTI)
Under the PTI program, trailers are issued a PTI license plate and a permanent identification card rather than regular trailer plates.
During conversion to the PTI program (starting with registrations that expired 12/31/2001), trailer owners were allowed to retain their existing trailer license plate or be issued new PTI plates. Those owners may exchange the retained trailer license plate for a PTI license plate at no charge.
- Partial Year Registration (PYR) is not available for trailers.
- Permanent Fleet Registration (PFR) is not available for trailers.
- Trailers cannot be registered under the International Registration Plan (IRP)
- The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will issue a (new) PTI license plate, if requested, and/or the PTI identification card (in lieu of a registration card). PTI owners may retain the trailer plate or special interest plate on the PTI trailer or place personalized plates on a PTI trailer. (Renewal fees will include any special plate fees due).
