MD State Inspections

The Annapolis Hitch Depot is an authorized Maryland State Inspection Station where you can obtain a Maryland Safety Inspection certificate for titling your vehicle in the state of Maryland.  Most inspections can be done within a 4 hour time frame with some smaller trailers done while-you-wait.    If you choose not to get temporary tags, we have a transport tag available for the INSPECTION ONLY at a nominal fee.

A Safety Inspection is required for all used cars, trucks, tractors, trailers, motorcycles, special equipment, and class "B" for hire vehicles being titled and registered in Maryland. They must be inspected by a licensed Maryland inspection station, such as automobile dealers, service stations and specialized automobile service centers. A Maryland Safety Inspection Certificate issued by the inspection station within the previous 90 days of the vehicle titling must accompany the Application for Title.

Safety inspections can be performed here for any size or style trailer. Starting as low as $49.95.   See below for our prices for your specific type of vehicle
