Trailer vehicle identification numbers (VIN)
Obtain a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for a new trailer
Owner/Builders can request a low volume Vehicle Identification Number VIN for a new trailer. A separate form is required to obtain a surrogate VIN for a motor vehicle in Western Australia.
If you have built your trailer prior to the current calendar year or refurbished your trailer, you will need to present the trailer for an examination. A request for a low volume VIN will be sent on your behalf by the Department of Transport Vehicle Examiners.
If you have applied for and have been allocated a VIN and your trailer is not built in this current calendar Year, contact the Department of Transport by return email, as the VIN allocated references the actual year the trailer was built.
To apply for a low volume VIN for a new trailer, please complete online form, or manual Form E70, below.
Low volume VINs issued by the Department of Transport cannot be used for importing trailers manufactured overseas. WA issued VINs which are used for the importation of trailers will be deleted.
If you are importing trailers, you will need to contact the Manufacturer in the country which the trailers are being constructed, and obtain VINs issued within the country of manufacture, and provide these VINs on your import application.
If you are intending on importing trailers, visit the Australian Government website, the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications.
Australian Company Number (ACN)
Under the Corporations Act 2001, every company in Australia has been issued with a unique, nine-digit number, an Australian Company Number (ACN), which must be shown on a range of documents.
The purpose of the ACN is to ensure adequate identification of companies when transacting business. New companies are issued with numbers by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) upon registration.
