Trailer brake requirements in WA


New Member

I'm trying to find clarification around the trailer brake requirement in WA.

I had a good read of this document: https://www.transport.wa.gov.au/mediaFiles/licensing/LBU_VS_IB_107.pdf but couldn't find a clear answer to this question:

- Are trailer mount brake controllers (such as this redarc model) allowed for a light trailer (~900kg, so above the 750kg limit).

Apparently some states require the brake controller to be located in the cabin but it's not really clear what the requirement is in WA...
I called a few places but nobody had a clue.

Thanks everyone for your input !
