    Registering a home made trailer in Queensland

    Hi everyone,

    Im about to register my home built trailer (thread in this section)

    thought It may be worth me posting the info i was given by queenland transport or TMR whatever they are called now.

    I was told you know 3 forms
    3648 -> Low Volume Vehicle Identification Number
    3518 -> new vehicle registration application
    3970 -> Self Assesment form

    Links to these respectively:
    http://www.support.transport.qld.gov.../F3648_CFD.pdf
    http://www.support.transport.qld.gov.../F3518_CFD.pdf
    http://www.support.transport.qld.gov...e/F3970_ES.pdf

    apparently the process is as follows (yet to do it but will be next week so can confirm after)

    fill out the three forms as best as possible(you will be missing the VIN number)

    go to TMR center

    present them with form 3648 (aquire a vin) and pay them $7.70 or something for a VIN plate.
    Stamp the VIN number and attach to trailer they give you from your 3648 form onto this.
    (was told you can 'skip' this and do it once you get home from TMR)
    then present them with form 3970 and 3518 which you then fill in the remaining boxes with the VIN you were just given.
    pay the $120 odd registration.

    then go home, attach and stamp VIN plate, fit number plates and happy days registerd home built under 750KG trailer.

    I have a feeling you need to get the CTP before this though so may need to do this on the phone while at TMR once you have the VIN to fill the CTP section out on form 3518.

    hope this helps somone else

    I will confirm this process after I have been through it next week.

    No CTP required, I registered mine before I built it........shh

    I need to upgrade my rego as I have fitted brakes as she has weighed in a little heavy

    all good, makes sense when I think about it that it would be included with teh cars CTP as the trailer isnt realyl likely to go driving itseld down the road now is it. . .

    I can now confirm the above process as I went through it yesterday.
    Weeds/Kelvin is right, you do not need the CTP for the trailer (coverd in the trailer rego I asume, but doesnt need to be added first as the form sugests)

    I filed all papaerwork there at once, though the lady told me technicly she isnt ment too and that I am meant to go attach the VIN plate stamp the chassis then return to register the trailer.

    Ill get around to updating my trailer build thread this weekend some time when I can be stuffed to go take photos of it!(not 100% done, but it is a useable box trailer, just not the camper I want)

    Hi Leroy,
    I know it's been a while going by the date of the post. But I am about to register a homemade boat trailer myself. I have the forms required. My question is do they do a visual inspection of the trailer? Also is an appointment required or just turn up at the QLD transport branch?

    Cheers

    inspection required if the trailer is braked.

    <750kg doesnít require inspection.

    I was wondering about this. I have an axle, hubs, and electric brakes that fit the wheels I have on my trailer (the axle came off a friend's caravan and the wheels I have also came off that van).

    I've been trying to sell them but, failing that I was thinking of fitting them to my <750kg 6x4 box trailer. If I didn't tell anyone, would I need an inspection. The trailer doesn't need brakes but they'd be nice to have.

    Er, good point. My research is based on > 750kg which automatically needs brakes.

    I think itís more the ATM of the trailer that triggers the inspection.
