Maryland law requires that most used vehicles scheduled for sale first undergo a safety inspection. The person selling the vehicle is usually required to have the vehicle tested. Either the seller or owner can obtain a certificate for a class E truck, class F truck tractor or class G freight trailer. Most inspection stations are certified to inspect passenger vehicles, light trucks, sports utility vehicles and trailers that do not exceed 20 feet in length and do not have air brakes.
