BEFORE YOU SCHEDULE

  • Check your calendar, inspections can take a couple of hours to do
  • Make sure the weather is nice, the vehicle needs to be dry for us to inspect
  • If you received a letter stating, you need an emission testing that is not this type of inspection. Unfortunately, we cannot perform the emissions testing but we do the repairs!

JUST MOVED TO MARYLAND?

You have 60 days to register your vehicle and to ensure you pass the state inspection. Which is required to finish registration.

PURCHASE A USED VEHICLE?

We suggest before signing the paperwork, make sure to have the vehicle inspected that way you have a good idea of what type of condition the vehicle is in. The Maryland Safety Inspection Certificate needs to be dated 90 days prior to the registration date. So, if you bought this vehicle and it already had this year’s inspection you will still need to go through the process because it is only valid for 90 days.
