Chapter 14: Permanent Trailer Identification (PTI)

14.035 Transfers

The transfer requirements for PTI trailers are the same as for other vehicles, except the applicant must submit:

  • If a paper title was not issued (excluding electronic lien and title [ELT]), a Permanent Trailer Identification (PTI) Certification (REG 4017) form with side B completed for transfer of ownership. A duplicate title fee is not due because a title was not issued.
  • If a paper title was issued then lost, stolen, or mutilated, an Application for Replacement or Transfer of Title (REG 227) form and the duplicate title fee (includes ELT records).
  • If the new owner wants a paper title, a REG 4017 with side A completed and a PTI paper title fee.
  • A transfer fee, in addition to any other fees and/or use tax due for the transaction.

Refer to Appendix 1F for fees.
