Did you just moved to Maryland and is your vehicle is registered in another state?

Then yes, you have 60 days to register your vehicle in the state of Maryland and a state inspection is required to register your vehicle.

Are you a resident of Maryland and have become an owner of a used vehicle?

If you answered yes, you will need a Maryland Safety Inspection certificate dated no more than 90 days prior to the registration date. This means even if the car you bought has already been inspected this year, you will still need to go through the inspection process again, because the certificate is only valid for 90 days.


We highly recommend that BEFORE you purchase a used vehicle that you have it inspected to ensure that that the vehicle will pass inspection. The inspection that we conduct are very detailed and will give you a good idea of what condition the vehicle is in.
