Are you talking about front position lights for trailers more than 1.6m wide? I'm reading this as these go on the trailer not on the lighting board and boat trailers are exempt.

Or have I missed something? Rather, have I missed several somethings as a quick squint at my lighting board suggests I fail on at least three counts. Bummer

Page 18 says not "h) Trailers manufactured after 1 October 1985 which are more than 1600mm wide, (except boat trailers) require front position lamps (clear lens)."
