Agricultural trailers legal requirements.

Agricultural trailers are legally required under PUWER 98 Regulations to be in a roadworthy condition - well maintained and in good working order with records of maintenance held by the owner/farmer. 

The Tilly trailer Pass offers the opportunity for trailers to be maintained to the legal standard. An annual  18 point inspection  will be carried out on your farm by authorised mechanics. Upon completion of the test a Tilly certificate will be fixed to the tailgate of your trailer , clearly displaying a Tilly pass unique number. This will be recorded alone with your chassis number for a thorough record of your  maintenance. 

To ask a question or Book your trailer for a Tilly. Contact us below or visit the booking page or location page to enquire about your nearest  authorised mechanic.
