When Does My Car Need a State Inspection?
There are three instances in which you must bring your vehicle in for an inspection: when you buy a vehicle, when you first bring your car into the state, or when you have a title change. If you recently moved to Maryland, you have 60 days to get your vehicle inspected and register it. If you recently bought a used car, it must be inspected within 90 days prior to registering. Should your vehicle fail the inspection, you have a grace period of 30 days and up to 1,000 miles to get the problems fixed and reinspected. All passenger cars, light trucks and SUVs (under 10,000 lb), and trailers that are less than 20 feet and without air brakes require a Maryland state inspection.
What Is Checked During the Inspection?
The Maryland state inspection is an involved process that examines a breadth of car components. The major parts that are inspected include the steering, alignment, brake system, electrical system, lighting, and tires. Each of these components is broken into an individual checklist—for example, the brake system is tested for stopping distance, drum and disc condition, linting and pad condition, hydraulic system condition, and parking brake condition. Additional checked elements range from the driver's seat and interior/exterior mirrors to safety belts and bumpers/fenders. Our certified technicians are proficient in conducting these inspections accurately and efficiently. Once the inspection is complete, you'll receive a pass/fail grade from our team. If your vehicle fails and needs further work, we are more than happy to discuss the next steps in getting the repairs needed for your vehicle to pass.
