NCC trailer registration

Press Releases
National Caravan Council calls for more clarity on Trailer Registration Act
NCC questions wisdom and practicality of levy on motorhoming to Scottish Isles
“The Secretary of State for Transport has committed to review which trailers will need mandatory registration. The NCC would welcome swift clarity from the Government on this point.

“The NCC does welcome the commissioned review into trailer safety, and supports practical, proportionate and effective measures aimed at improving safety but this must be supported by clear evidence. The majority of caravan accidents occur due to ‘use’ factors rather than pure roadworthiness factors or mechanical failure. Any roadworthiness type test would not prevent user behaviour-related accidents.

“Government must work to exclude domestic leisure trailers (O2) from any proposals to introduce a mandatory trailer registration scheme and broaden their review when examining what type of testing it may recommend in its report, due within 12 months of Royal Assent.

“Having worked on this issue on behalf of NCC members since July 2017, we will continue our engagement with the Department for Transport and push for greater clarity on trailer registration and safety.”

Noddy's Caravan Club bleating again? I tend to ignore anything they come up with as most of it is ridiculous with no merit.

My take on it is if it goes ahead and we have to register caravans with the DVLA then it will be the end of the lucrative Cris scheme.

I think the DVLA already have enough on their plate and struggle with car registrations and will not be able to manage caravans. If a caravan has to be registered that means new documents and number plates for starters and that will cost the government a hell of a lot of cash!
