I'm new to Maryland. How long do I have to register my vehicle?

     Welcome to Maryland! You are required to register your vehicle within 60 days of moving to the state of Maryland. If you wait longer than 60 days, you won't be eligible for a tax credit for any titling tax paid in any other state, and you may be subject to a citation for an out of state registration.
