What are the lighting requirements for trailers?

Every trailer is required to have two taillamps, two reflectors (one on each side), and one stoplight.

  • A stoplight is not required if the towing vehicle’s stoplight is visible.

Clearance lamps, one on each side of the trailer, front and rear, are required if the trailer is over 80 inches (6' 8") in width.
