It's Your Traveling!

Do I want to register trailer ahead of bringing to RI? Check with the DMV

Q: I am acquiring a new boat with trailer in Massachusetts. Do I need to have to sign-up the trailer just before I choose up the boat and deliver it back to Rhode Island?

— Jerry S.,  South Kingstown

A: If there is a plate on the trailer, then you can transfer the boat on that trailer.

If there is not a plate on the trailer, you will need to have to sign up the trailer to journey on any highway or highway.

Our internet site (www.dmv.ri.gov) has a whole section on “Trailer Registrations” that can be identified in the “Registrations & Titles” tab. This web site on our web site has registration information and facts for obtained trailers, purchased selfmade trailers and trailers created by the operator. You should make confident you comply with these directions to make it much easier for you when you come in to sign-up your trailer.
