Oversized Vehicles & Trailers

I park my oversized vehicle or trailer in my driveway and never on the street , do I still need a registration sticker?
No.  A registration sticker and daily paperless parking permits only apply to oversized vehicles and trailers that are parked on public streets and wish to have the entitlements of a Torrance resident (vs. visitor).

Where do I get a registration sticker? How much does registration cost?
Registration Stickers are available at the Community Development Department (CDD).  Residents  must fill out an Oversized Vehicle/Trailer Application Form (PDF), provide proof of residency (i.e. California Driver License, utility bill, and vehicle registration) and pay a $25 one-time non-transferable fee per vehicle.
