ALL Masssachusetts trailer registrations are up for renewal in November. In most cases, you can complete this process online and a trip to the registry is not necessary. Registration fees vary by plate type. A normal trailer registration costs $20 for the first 1000 pounds and $20 per additional 1000 pounds.

There are a few reasons you might not be able to complete a renewal. You can't renew your registration if:

  • Your vehicle/trailer registration is suspended or revoked.

  • You have unpaid parking tickets, excise tax, or EZ-Pass violations.

If any of the above apply to you, you will have to take the necessary steps to resolve any flags against your account before proceeding with your registration renewal, such as paying unpaid parking tickets. You can check your trailer registration status on the RMV website to find out whether you can renew. It's your choice; register on-line or stand in-line at the RMV to complete your renewal.
