Most used vehicles are required by Maryland Law to undergo a safety inspection prior to its sale or transfer. Generally, the seller or transferor of the vehicle is required to obtain the inspection certificate. The purchaser/transferee then submits the inspection certificate to the MVA in order to register the vehicle. A certificate of inspection issued by the inspection station within the previous 90 days of the vehicle titling must accompany the Application for Title.
How do I obtain a Maryland Inspection Certificate for my vehicle?
To obtain an inspection certificate, you must have your vehicle inspected at an authorized safety inspection station in Maryland. The Maryland State Police has licensed approximately 1,600 of these facilities in all parts of the state.
