[FONT=Verdana]I live here in Baltimore but have a car that’s registered in NC (I'm in between states for a couple months). I am in the midst of selling it and would like to see if it would pass inspection here in Maryland. Can I just go to any Maryland Inspection Station and do the test or do I have to go to the DMV and fill out paper work before I can have it inspected? I have a buyer and it is in good condition but that is one of their questions so I am hoping I can just drive it over let them do the test to prove that it would pass and then sign over the title and let them get it registered. I heard that some people take their tag with them? Should I let the new buyer just keep my tag or take it with??Thanks Alot[/FONT]

You can get a MD inspection without having your car registered in MD... Just go to an authorized shop, its the same as paying for an oil change...

Umm, he was talking about the emissions inspection. I don't think most shops can do that.

Is the vehicle 1996 or newer? If so all they are going to do is hook it up to the OBD port... If the car doesn't have any check engine lights it will pass...

It doesn't have to pass the emissions immediately for the buyer to get their title and registration. It does have to pass the MD safety inspection which is different and very strict compared to most states.

If the buyer is just concerned whether it will pass when he/she does eventually have to take it to emissions, tercel95's post is right if the car has an OBD port, and you really don't have to take it there to know if it will pass or not. If it's older, it will need to have the traditional test so you would have to take it there. But if they have the safety insp. done, the mechanic doing the inspection ought to be able to give you a pretty good idea of whether it will pass or not. I don't think there's any need to take it to the VEIP place.

If he wants to sell the car the pollution certification from a VEIP station might be a selling point as would a safety inspection. Caution, they are only good for a certain number of days/miles prior to selling.

You only have to worry about emissions if you live in a county that enforces emissions testing.

Since it's a 1992 and a '94, they will get the sniffer. Tune them up and make sure the cars are fully warmed up before undergoing the sniffer.
