Regulations require you to have a state vehicle inspection on file to pick up riders in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. You may pick up riders without an inspection for 90 days in DC and 30 days in Virginia. Maryland requires you to have an inspection on file before you can accept pick ups in the state.
We recommend DC-area drivers get a Virginia state inspection, as it allows access to pickups in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. For additional information, visit the inspections page of our DC driver guide:
