How to Register a Homemade Trailer in Oklahoma

Oklahoma has relatively relaxed trailer registration laws and policies when compared with most other states. Noncommercial use trailers in Oklahoma do not require any registration, so whether or not you want to register your homemade trailer is entirely up to you. If you do want to register your trailer, you can do so through the Oklahoma Tax Commission motor vehicle department.

Designate your trailer as a commercial or non-commercial trailer. If you use the trailer for commercial purposes, meaning you use it for your business, you must register it with the state of Oklahoma.

  • Print out the Oklahoma Non-Commercial Trailer Letter if you plan to take your trailer out of state, as other states have stricter trailer registration laws and require trailers to have specific tags and registration paperwork.
