In accordance with Governor Larry Hogan’s directive and to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA) will implement a temporary, two-week suspension of in-person services at all branch offices and Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP) stations statewide beginning the morning of Monday, December 21. Branch offices and VEIP stations will reopen Monday, January 4, at 8:30 a.m.

All previously scheduled appointments from Monday, December 21, to Saturday, January 2, will be rescheduled. Customers will be contacted by phone or email.

Customers who are due for emissions tests from Monday, December 21, to Saturday, January 2, will be given a 30-day extension from their due date.

Customers with questions related to emergency business needs, such as obtaining a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) or registering fleet vehicles needed to bring resources to Marylanders, should reach out to MDOT MVA at [email protected].

MDOT MVA self-service VEIP kiosks, online services, and 24-hour kiosks will be available throughout the two suspension on in-person services.

When offices and VEIP stations reopen Monday, January 4, COVID-19 safety measures including plexiglass dividers, social distancing practices and limited seating will remain in place at MDOT MVA branches and VEIP station lobbies.
