PA Trailer Inspection Requirements
Pennsylvania’s inspection requirements cover any trailer with a gross weight of over 3,000 pounds. The process involves:
- Verifying the ownership and legality of the trailer
- Performing an exterior inspection to confirm that the lights, window glazing, door, tailgate and other components are in good working order and that the license and VIN plate are securely fastened
- Performing an interior inspection to confirm that the flooring and floor beds will support cargo and that other related components are in good working order
- Inspecting underneath the vehicle to verify that the correct tires are installed and that they are in good condition
- Examining the frame, braking system and suspension
If the inspection identifies any issues, you will need to have them fixed before we can validate your registration. Our technicians may also point out other issues that, while not enough to merit a failed inspection, could be a problem down the line if not taken care of soon.
When Should I Schedule a Trailer Inspection?
Every registration sticker has an expiry date — after that time, you can’t legally use your trailer on a public road. Pennsylvania law allows you to complete an inspection up to three months before your current registration expires. It’s often best to get the inspection done early on the off chance we need to order parts or make more extensive repairs.
