Schedule My Safety Inspection

When Do I Need a Maryland State Inspection?

New Residents: If you're a new resident, you must title and register your vehicles within 60 days of residency. This keeps your vehicle(s) in compliance with Maryland laws and allows you to take advantage of a lower excise tax. To complete registration, your vehicle(s) must pass the safety inspection.

Used Car Sales: In addition, most used vehicles must pass a state safety inspection before they can be sold or transferred. The seller or transferor is generally the person who must obtain the inspection certificate, although certain vehicle classes allow the purchaser/transferee to obtain the certificate as well. An exemption exists for vehicles transferred as a gift between immediate family members. For this type of exemption, a gift certification form must be filled out instead.

You can learn more about Maryland safety inspections from the Maryland Department of Transportation.
