NC Permanent Trailer License Plate

Did you know that NC offers a multi-year trailer license plate? It has been available since 1993 and is covered by NC General Statue § 20-88 (c) Property Hauling Vehicles. The Department of Motor Vehicles doesn’t offer it voluntarily. You have to ask for it.


NC GS § 20-88 (c) Property Hauling Vehicles: “The fee for a semi trailer or trailer is nineteen dollars ($19.00) for each year or part of a year. The fee is payable each year. Upon the application of the owner of a semi trailer or trailer, the Division may issue a multi-year plate and registration card for the semi trailer or trailer for a fee of seventy‑five dollars ($75.00). A multi-year plate and registration card for a semi trailer or trailer are valid until the owner transfers the semi trailer or trailer to another person or surrenders the plate and registration card to the Division. A multi-year plate may not be transferred to another vehicle. The Division shall issue a multi-year semi trailer or trailer plate in a different color than an annual semi trailer or trailer plate and shall include the word "multi year" on the plate. The Division may not issue a multi-year plate for a house trailer.”

  • Furthermore, remember-residents of Durham, Orange, and Wake counties must also pay an additional fee for the Regional Transportation Authority Registration Tax.

  • Be sure to keep up with the registration as a replacement card is $25.
