Never. Literally once you register it you likely never need to bring it for inspection. Larger trailers and commercial units are different. Also not sure about trailers for carrying animals. I do know that boat trailers, sled, utility etc. basically have no inspection requirements unless they're brand new.

Have many friends pulling horses many years and only heard of one case when the trailer came off due to a system defect. Guess, it's not happening a lot... Trailers need to be approved every second year to refresh the street permission. How's the frequency at yours?
Never... We buy a trailer-specific license plate, which is good for a lifetime. I suppose patrols could order an inspection if they found some suspicious hardware though...

I'd be afraid to drive behind a trailer where you life

Yeah I forgot to mention that. It's sort of an internal responsibility system. They never inspect your trailer, but if something happens or you're caught driving with something unsafe, watch out!

Same thing with vehicles in Alberta. It's very different from Ontario here. I bought a '77 Toyota Celica GT here in AB for $500. Got insurance for it ($150 for full coverage per year, no questions asked) and registered it (no inspections, no emissions, nothing).

It actually wigged me out to drive this $500 vehicle around for a second. And then I realized that if I didn't make sure it was safe, I could get charged in the event of an accident. So I put brand new brakes and suspension on the thing, new lights, etc. and made sure all the other systems were working fine. I've seen some crazy vehicles driving around Alberta and now I know why!

Here's one of the things I see driving around my town. It gets more interesting at 2:30...

1st inspection of a car at 4y, 2nd at 7y, and then every 2 years! Emission test every 2nd year. Inspectors are fussy, if the car has rust, it's doomed. You're scared to go there with a car >10y, you're likely sent home with a list of deficiencies you need to fix that cost you 1k.

Here in the US it's different state to state, some are pretty strict and some don't give a shit what you drive as long as the lights work.

Today I hate the fact that my stupid ass self took a promotion that requires me to be available at all times basically. I liked it better when I just did construction and took winters off. I wish my greed would coincide with my passion more.
