VEHICLE SAFETY INSPECTIONS

Under Maryland law, a vehicle must by inspected by an authorized vehicle inspection station in situations where:

  • A vehicle is tagged for operation by a new owner
  • When an individual is establishing a permanent residence in Maryland.

There are very few exceptions to this rule. Maryland Auto is the area's leading vehicle safety inspection station, delivering more inspections per month than most any other station in Baltimore. Cars, trucks, RVs, and trailers are inspected daily, Monday through Friday, by appointment (while-you-wait), or by convenient drop off service.
