Tow Dolly Registration

Does a tow Dolly require a registration? I see many with no plates.

Same here. I also do not have a brake light system for the toad, only trailer brake lights. I have heard conflicting statements on whether those are required anywhere.

Colorado doesn't require it, although when I called our DMV they weren't sure. After several minutes of conversation they decided a car dolly was what they classify as "apparatus" and a plate is not required. Not sure what they mean by apparatus, but they though it was stuff like a contractor pulling a generator on wheels. They did say that if I came in they would accept a tax payment and give me a certificate. Haven't gotten around to that yet...

Kentucky required restoration of my dolly but Texas does not.

Surprisingly California does not require registration for a tow dolly. I had to look it up, as I thought anything that touched public roads was required to register. They do require, what is call PTI, or permanent trailer identification, which gets it a plate of some sort, but no year tag.

Not required in Texas even tho most office personnel don't know this. Printed the section from Texas DMV to take with me as proof. I did register the tow dolly but plates are a separate issue.

Alabama does. But it doesn't require registration for my boat trailer - they said the boat registration suffices for both the boat and the trailer. So I asked why the car tag wouldn't work for the dolly? I checked the reg - it addresses only boat trailers. Go figure!

It's Alabama! Nuff said.
