Any trailer that weighs less than 2,000 pounds is not required to be titled; it is only registered. Read our boat/utility trailer publication for information regarding the documentation required to register your trailer.
Note: If the trailer is homemade (2,000 pounds or more) and has never been titled or registered, the DMV Regional Office located in Palmetto must inspect the trailer and assign a Florida Assigned Trailer Number (a.k.a., FLT number) before a Florida title and registration may be issued.
