In partnership with the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA), Envirotest has managed and operated a vehicle emissions inspection program in Maryland since 1984. In 2009, the Maryland Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP) transitioned to a new program design. Envirotest inspects more than 1.6 million vehicles annually at 18 testing stations in 14 counties statewide utilizing on-board diagnostics (OBDII), idle emissions, and gas cap pressure testing technology.
To complement our robust testing equipment, Envirotest has integrated the use of a new tool across many of our programs to ensure accuracy in our testing lanes. Envirotest’s proprietary OBD CommCheck Tester is used actively in our testing lanes to verify the integrity of our equipment. We have integrated new self-service kiosks (pictured below) to our overall solution for the State of Maryland and we are working to pilot many new options to improve convenience for the motorists of Maryland.
Envirotest in Maryland has established scholarship funds at Morgan State University, Coppin State University, and the University of Maryland in Baltimore County. Collectively, these scholarships are approaching a million dollars in value and are managed to provide financial assistance to minority and underprivileged undergraduate candidates pursuing engineering and business curriculum.
Envirotest supports many other Baltimore-based charities and associations, including the local VFW, Pimlico Road Youth Program, the Western Tech High School Robotics Team, Outward Bound, The National Great Blacks in Wax Museum, The National Kidney Foundation of Maryland, The Baltimore City Schools Police Department, The Scleroderma Foundation of Maryland, Druid Hill YMCA, Bon Secours, The American Lung Association, and The National Center for Children and Families.
