    I finally finished building my small flatbend trailer :) it came with a title, but now i have to get it registered (state of virginia btw). everything is DOT sertified (wheels/tires, lights, etc), and it has the VIN plate riveted onto the side of the frame. so how do i go about getting it registered and getting a license plate for it? my plan is to head over to the DMV tomorrow with the trailer (it's less than a mile drive on back roads, so i'm not worried about getting pulled over). what do i need to bring? so far i have
    1)trailer with vin plate
    2)drivers license
    3)passport (second form of ID just in case)
    4) title certificate that came with the trailer
    5) reciept from where i got the trailer to show that i paid taxes on it
    6) $$$ for the registration fee.

    am I missing anything? or are there any things/tips i should know about trying to get a trailer registered?

    just want to make things as smoothe and easy as possible.

    thanks!

    In PA, you just need drivers license, title, and $$

    thanks ben, i feel like it's probably the same for most states, and that the fee may just vary a little
