License Plates and Registration Refunds

Once you're settled in your new state, you must return your Maryland license plates to your local title service agent.

If you have at least 12 months remaining on your registration, you will receive a registration refund.

Contact Your New State's Agencies

When you leave Maryland behind, you also leave Maryland's rules and regulations behind. This means you need to familiarize yourself with your new state's policies regarding driver licenses, vehicle registrations, and the time limits you have to take care of them.
