In many states, an inspection is a big deal which requires vehicle owners to travel to a special inspection site and receive clearance to drive, yearly. Here in Maryland, though, we have more practical requirements. In fact, there are only two situations in which you will need to obtain a certified state inspection:
1. You have just moved to MD with a vehicle registered in another state. If this scenario applies to you—welcome! We hope you grow to love it here as much as we do!
2. You are a MD resident and just purchased, inherited, or were gifted a used vehicle. You have 90 days from the point-of-sale to have your car inspected—even if the previous owner has just completed an inspection.
