Homemade Trailer Registration

Homemade trailers are required to have a serial plate affixed before the trailer can be registered and a license plate issued.  Serial plates and license plates can be applied for at your County Tag Office. The following process is required:

  • Submit a signed and notarized Form T-23 Homemade Trailer Affidavit.
  • The County agent will give you a Form T-22C (Permission for County Assigned Serial Plate for a Homemade Trailer) and serial plate.
  • Serial plate must be permanently affixed to the trailer with rivets and a Georgia Law Enforcement Officer must complete Form T-22C certifying that the serial plate has been affixed to the trailer.
  • Submit the completed Form T-22C to your County Tag Office with:
    • $12.00 license plate fee.
    • Applicable Ad Valorem tax.
  • The serial plate number is used as the vehicle identification number (VIN) or serial number in any subsequent motor vehicle transactions.

Note: Georgia does not issue titles for homemade trailers.
