Boats & Boat Trailers


DMV does not title or register boats.  The Oregon State Marine Board issues boat titles and registration.  See www.boatoregon.com, or call (503) 378-8587 for more information.

Boat Trailers
If your loaded trailer weighs less than 1,800 pounds, you do not have to title and register it or get a trip permit to pull it over public roads. 
However, you may wish to obtain a title for your trailer.  If the trailer is stolen, most law enforcement agencies and insurance companies will want to see proof of ownership.

All trailers used on the road must be equipped to meet safety standards.  See the ODOT Vehicle Equipment and Safety Standards page for more information. 
For information about titling and registering boat trailers, see light trailers
