Its just more government regulation to create more revenue for the politicians to use as they see fit. They use "safety" as the reasoning behind it. Surprised the wack jobs that run California haven't come up with this yet.

I'd suggest leaving the sticker on. With this transition, there should be lots of flexibility from LEOs.

Just a quick note, I'm LEO and our municipal court judge advised us that expired or no inspection stickers are no longer a cause for PC to pull anyone over. Therefore you can remove any inspection sticker now without fear of a ticket. That's in the DFW area but I'm sure the judge studied the state law on this. I've already removed my motorcycle inspection plate and will be removing them from my vehicle as they expire of course. This is a grace year so there will be tons of non inspected vehicles roaming around out there.

Remember that all the money belongs to the government, they are the ones that print it. We are lucky they allow us to have any at all. After all, you didn't build that and it takes a village. The government knows better what to do with the money you earn than you do. Like give it to other governments or give it to people who do nothing, oops, I mean who have nothing. I am really surprised that Cal has no RV inspections but it is looking at a Tax Per Mile. Won't that be fun. But with that, they have to know where you are, hummmmmm.

Good luck, good health and safe travels!
No, not utility trailers need to be inspected.

Look everyone, it is staying the same EXCEPT for one thing: you don't get a sticker.
That's literally all. You still have to get an inspection for all trailers 4500LB GVWR and over. It, or the vehicle towing it must have insurance in force. It's still $14.50, just split in different places instead of all at once. There is also a plan for those that full time and use Texas as their residence.

Trust me.

Went in today to register my trailer. Had my inspection report and insurance ready. All she needed was the report, my drivers license, and my check. From closing the truck door to opening it was about 6 minutes... No problems... She did say, no tickey... no laundry... meaning that without the inspection report, I wouldn't have gotten my registration.

Wow where I live all you get is a licence plate. You never have to renew it. It has a sticker that says permanent.
Most people get insurance and that is not mandatory if your vehicle covers what you pull.
I have had the same plate on 3 different trailers. All I ever did was transfer the serial # with the Department of motor vehicles.
Sounds like Texas has a real cash cow.

On another note. Any construction trailer or work trailer,i.e. portable welder or cement mixer gen set etc. Licence plate not required.
I used to rent a lot of equipment and I inquired at United Rentals and they said that plates were not required in Alberta Canada.
And that is possibly the only good thing about being north of the border!

I had heard this as well but I just got the note this week for my boat trailer that has gvwr of 4100lbs. Not sure I get that.

I believe that if you have a trailer that requires a license plate, then you will have to get a safety inspection before the next registration.
