Maryland Registration Information

The Old Line State

Moved to Maryland? Register your vehicle.

As a new resident of Maryland you must register your vehicle within 60 days of moving to Maryland. If you delay beyond 60 days, you will not be eligible for a tax credit for any titling tax paid in another state, and you may be subject to a citation for an out-of-state registration.

You can apply for a Maryland title, and registration, in person at any of the MVA's (Motor Vehicle Administration) full service branch offices. You also can mail the documents to the MVA's Out-of-State Title Unit, 6601 Ritchie Highway, Glen Burnie, MD 21062, or go to an MVA licensed tag and title service where they will assist you in applying.

Typically, you will need to submit the following forms to obtain a title for your vehicle:

  • Proof of ownership
  • Application form for Certificate of Title form (#VR-005)
  • Maryland Safety Inspection Certificate
