Vehicle inspections

Washington, DC

Regulations require you to have a state vehicle inspection on file to pick up riders in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. You may pickup riders in DC for 90 days and in Virginia for 30 days without an inspection, but Maryland requires one before you can accept pickups.

Already have an inspection?

If you live in Maryland or Virginia, there's a good chance you already have an inspection. Take a photo of it and upload it to your account, if you haven't already.
