Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program

Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP) Stations Remain Closed for VEIP testing, however eight of the ten 24 hour VEIP self-service kiosks​ are open for motorists with 2005 model year and newer vehicles (2008 and newer for heavy duty vehicles). The Columbia and Owings Mills VEIP self-service kiosks are closed at this time. 

Vehicles that have VEIP due dates during the state of emergency are being automatically extended. Vehicle owners whose vehicles are due for inspection during the state of emergency will receive a new notice stating their revised, future due date. This notice should be delivered via mail about two months before your new VEIP due date.

For questions regarding VEIP due dates, vehicle registration status, or waivers, contact the Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA)

VEIP - Let's Clear the AirMaryland’s Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP) is an important component of the State’s plan to improve air quality. By requiring inspection of vehicle emission systems every two years and repair of vehicles that fail to meet emissions standards, VEIP significantly reduces vehicle emissions that contribute to Maryland’s air quality problem of ground-level ozone. 


 
The Maryland Department of Environment (MDE) and the Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) jointly administer VEIP. Envirotest of Maryland, Inc. is the private contractor responsible for day-to-day testing operations.  The VEIP testing network consists of 18 centralized inspection stations and 10 self-service kiosks located in 13 counties and Baltimore City. 
 
Maryland’s VEIP is working. By having your vehicle tested, you are playing an important part in Maryland’s successful and ongoing efforts to create a healthier Maryland. Along with cleaner fuels and vehicles, VEIP has significantly reduced Maryland’s air pollution problems. However, we continue to have a problem with ground-level ozone, a major component of smog.
