Good day! I have a query on unlicensed vehicles such as home made trailers, cranes, Bell Loggers and the like. If they are transported from one farm to the next, how many kilometres are they allowed to travel on a public road?
All trailers must be licensed. Reg 21 allows them to be specially classified. They will then be allowed to cross the road within 1 km.
If the vehicle is due to dimensions or load not allowed on a public road it is exempt from registration and the 1 km provision applies as well.
Reg 5 and 21 are relevant.
