Uber and Lyft Inspections

Stay in Compliance with Uber & Lyft Inspections

Discounted Rate: $55 with Prepaid Appointment

Call (301) 937-2166 to Schedule Your Appointment in Advance

Uber no longer provides free inspections in Maryland; save with our discounted rate when you call to schedule service.

Uber and Lyft require their drivers to pass annual inspections. If you're a driver who needs a Uber or Lyft inspection center, contact Auto Express Service Center. We perform inspections for drivers across Beltsville, MD, College Park, MD, Laurel, MD, Green Belt, MD, and surrounding areas.


Log In - Uber Log In - Lyft

Reminder: If you have wheel locks, we'll need your wheel lock key.

Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment, so we can check you in and process your paperwork.
If you're late, we may not be able to fit you in for the inspection. No refund will be offered if you're late.

Make an Appointment

When you book an appointment, you agree to our booking cancellation policy.

Appointments must be made by calling (301) 937-2166.

If you miss your appointment or fail to cancel through the link on your confirmation email within 24 hours prior to your appointment time, you won't receive a refund.

Book My Uber or Lyft Inspection

If we're unable to complete your inspection due to inclement weather (heavy rain, snow, or ice), you'll receive a refund.*

*You MUST call to see if the weather will prevent us from performing the inspection prior to your appointment.


Price: $70

We accept walk-ins on a first come, first service basis (pending availability).

We recommend making an appointment by phone, since some days might be booked full already. In addition, booking by phone gets you the discounted price.

If you would prefer to walk-in, we recommend arriving early since we must fit you around the day's scheduled appointments (if possible). Often, if there are available spots, they fill up early in the day.


Did you fail an inspection with us within the last 30 days AND 1,000 miles?

Call us to schedule a re-inspection with three working days notice: (301) 937-2166


1. Do I need to schedule an appointment or do accept walk ins?
We accept walk-ins on a first come, first serve basis. Be aware you might not be able to secure an appointment on the day you walk-in or that you may need to wait depending on how many people we have scheduled that day.

**The discounted price of $55 only applies if you book by calling in advance.

2. Can I make an appointment by phone?
Yes. To receive your discounted rate, you must call (301) 937-2166 to pay in advance and schedule your appointment time and date.

3. What should I do if I need to cancel my appointment?
Cancel or reschedule through the confirmation email we send. Please note, you can cancel up to 24 hours prior to your appointment time. You can also email info@autoexpressmd.com or call (301) 937-2166 within that timeline to cancel.

4. How long will my inspection take?
Most Uber and Lyft safety inspections take around an hour to complete.

5. What should I do if my car fails the inspection?
If your car fails its inspection, you have 30 days and 1,000 miles to address any issues that caused the failure and pass a re-inspection.

6. How do I schedule a re-inspection?
Uber and Lyft re-inspections can be scheduled within 30 days and 1,000 miles of your initial inspection. For a re-inspection you may call us at (301) 937-2166, or email info@autoexpressmd.com.

7. I went over the thirty days or one thousand miles, what happens now?
You need to schedule and pay for another inspection appointment online.

8. If I fail the inspection, do I need to have the repairs done at Auto Express Service Center?
No, but you can do them through us if you choose. You can also have them performed by your regular mechanic or do them yourself.

9. What is the rule on tint?
As long as the total tint measures 35% or higher light emitting, it's okay. If you're driving with windows that are darker than what's allowed or you have a tinted windshield, your vehicle will fail.

10. What do I need to bring with me for the inspection?
Bring your car and phone with the Uber Partner or Lyft Driver app. You'll need to show us the Partner app to verify that the vehicle is an Uber  or Lyft car.

11. Can someone else bring my car in for me?
Yes! Please note this person will still need to show us your Uber Partner or Lyft Driver app (or log into the partner website on their phone).

12. What happens if I'm running late?
Give us a call! We'll try to accommodate you the best we can, although it may not always be possible. We ask that you plan to arrive at least 10 minutes before your appointment time so we can check you in and process your paperwork.

13. My car is brand new, so why does it need to be inspected?

New cars come with a certificate of origin, but not a state inspection. If you're driving with Uber or Lyft, Maryland requires your vehicle to pass the state safety inspection.

14.Can you call me when there is an opening for an inspection?
Unfortunately, we can't alert you to appointment openings due to the volume of drivers waiting for an inspection. You can see available days/times in our online scheduler. However, you must schedule by phone at (301) 937-2166 to pay the discounted price.

15. What gets checked during the Uber or Lyft safety inspection?
You can learn more about Maryland state inspections on the official MVA website.

16. Do you take Saturday inspection appointments?
We offer some Saturday appointments. Please see our online scheduler to view dates/times, but make sure to schedule by phone at (301) 937-2166 to receive your discounted rate.
