Depending on the vehicle type, a car inspection takes one to one and a half hours. Unlike most states, there are only two situations in which a Maryland driver needs to have his car inspected. When a car is registered in another state and the driver has just moved to Maryland, he has 60 days to register the vehicle. Similarly, if a person buys or inherits a used vehicle, he needs to obtain a certificate. It is issued by the Motor Vehicle Administration of the Maryland Department of Transportation.
