A Deeper Dive Into the Requirements

Maryland inspection depends on your circumstances. If you’re buying a used automobile or bringing in one from another state, the vehicle must pass both a safety and exhaust inspection before you can complete the registration. The safety inspection entails multiple points across various systems and safety features. For instance, one of our technicians will check your braking system, particularly for sufficient brake pad thickness. Also, all lights/signals will need to be in proper working order as well wipers, seat belts, the horn, etc. The exhaust system function will be assessed as part of the emissions check. Once registered in our state, your vehicle must pass the exhaust requirements again every two years for renewal. Our staff is always happy to discuss the detailed list of checkpoints if you need additional information.
