AZ tabs are good for a year from when you buy them. Florida was a pain, they expired on your birthday. We had 2 cars, a camper and a boat on a trailer.

AZ excludes TTs from permanent tabs.

They are the stickers that (in California) go on the upper corners of the rear license plate to indicate that the registration is current and the fees have been paid. The left one is usually the Month, and the right one is usually the Year. They are color coded so that a law enforcement officer can tell at a glance if you're up-to-date.

Ok thanks, I just always called them new stickers. My Boler still has Cali permanent plates.

They're referred to as "tabs" because years ago they were metal and had small tabs that had to be bent to keep them from falling off the license plates. OMG, I've just aged myself

Alf how does that work? How do they know if your insurance is current? Here in BC you buy the plate when you register the trailer and you can keep it and register it to a new trailer also but you need to purchase insurance and it is then you are given a valid tag to put on the plate - which shows the date the insurance is valid until.

You have to insure a trailer? Not here in Maryland. Car insurance Usually covers anything in tow. Stickers on cars and trailers are good for two years. $102 every two years for trailers up to 3,000 pounds.

Tabs on my 13' Scamp cost me a whopping $13 for the year and insurance is $74 for the year. Not too bad I think.

Yes. Here in BC the trailer must have totally seperate insurance. The cars insurance does not cover anything you tow.
