In MD, inspection is required only when you buy (and therefore register) a used car. Usually, you will try and get the seller to do the inspection and fix whatever needs fixing.

Emmissions are due every two years. Unless your car is really old, they simply plug the emmissions computer into the OBDC port and take a reading since any modern car monitors its own emmission equipment. If your car is older, some spotty 'yout' gets to drive it up to 55 mph on the rollers.
