Your showing your age!
Permanently fixed trailers? Blocks? Drums?
They all went out with button up boots!
Even those Scarab 3 wheel dock tractors had quick release in the 30's!
BUT, good question. Noted Swishy said 1989 seperate rego came in.
Much later than NSW I would think, seems I can recall mid70's you could still register as a unit or as a seperate entity.
Which is not really answering your question.
Those single drive Commers and Leylands run by S&M Fox (later Clutha) were from memory registered as a unit, both number plate front of P/M as well as Rear of trlr the same. Cant vouch for other states , other than getting nabbed at Wallangarra with black and yellow plates on P/M and black and yellow plates on trailer. Trouble was, two different plates.
Sprung outside the Wallangarra waterhole for parking in no parking area, Fined $10!. Got a bit smart and said a few unseemly words, led to the constabulary walking around truck/trailer, spotted discrepancy in rego plates, fined another $15 for unregistered trailer! AND STILL haven't learned to keep my big yap shut!
Back in the early seventies when SA rego was all the go, Tom Lindsay flew over there and registered a heap of trucks and trailers as single units. Three plates issued, 2 for the truck and one for the trailer. Thing was, when quick hitching, the driver had to remember to change the trailer plate.
One trailer came in with a defect lable stuck on it beside the number plate. No biggie, but the number on the defect didn't match the one on the number plate, which didn't match the one on the rego lablel. All became too confusing and went back to the old system of separate regos.
.........and got away with it for years! The only requisite was that you had the word "..............Traders" on your title. What was paid up capital again?? $10:00 or something like that? A certain well know Transport entepranuer from South of Sydney used to freely negotiate trips to Naracoorte, throw in a few beers and a feed, overnight stay in a motel , plus return air fare to Adelaide from wherever. Couldn't keep up with it for a while, had to "subbie" out his freight loading agency.

Paul, here in N.S.W. You could register a prime Mover & trailer as a Unit up until the early '90s..
From memory come renewal Time you had to get them Induvidually weighed & inspected where they would issue you with a trailer Plate & 2 rego certificates..
Even Today you see quite a Few Semi Tippers permanently Bolted to the Prime Mover.. Coal & Quarry Tippers come to Mind..
