Cheverly Police Department
Out-of-State Registration Enforcement Campaign
The Cheverly Police Department has recently begun a campaign to bring Cheverly residents with out of state registration plates into compliance with Maryland law and the town code. The law requires that Maryland residents register their motor vehicles with the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) within sixty (60) days. Failure to comply with the law may result in a fine of $275.00 under the Maryland Transportation Article, and/or a fine of $100.00 under the town code. Additionally, the town code allows for the issuance of fines for vehicles parked in violation of this code every ten (10) days.

There are currently several exemptions allowable under law. For example, active military personnel with current registration plates from their home state are exempted. Currently enrolled students may be exempted if their home state grants the same exemption to Maryland residents, their vehicles are insured in compliance with Maryland law, and they obtain a nonresident permit in accordance with MVA regulations. In addition, there are certain exemptions for diplomats, members of Congress, and certain types of vehicles.

If you have any questions relative to Maryland law or registering your vehicle, please contact the Maryland MVA at 1-800-950-1682, or visit online at www.marylandmva.com. If you believe that you are entitled to an exemption, please contact the Cheverly Police Department at (301)773-8362.

Once a notice is left on your vehicle or given to you personally, your vehicle information will be recorded. At the end of the 60 day notification period, Cheverly police officers will begin enforcement of the above described violations. Do not wait until the last minute to obtain Maryland registration plates.

Maryland law also requires residents to obtain a Maryland driver’s license during this same 60 day period. Enforcement of both statutes will be conducted concurrently. In addition, vehicles that are identified through this program with multiple unpaid parking tickets may be subject to impound under the town code. If you have any outstanding parking tickets on your vehicle, regardless of the current state of registration, make every effort to pay these tickets or request a court appearance before the vehicle becomes subject to impound.

Do you need to dispose of an unlicensed or unwanted vehicle?
You can make it a donation that is tax deductible. There are numerous non-profit organizations including the Town of Cheverly that will take the car off your hands. Call the Police Department at 301-773-8362 for information.

Cheverly Parking Zones Reminder:
If you have not renewed your parking sticker yet, please do so as soon as possible to avoid parking tickets. The 2005 stickers are available at the POLICE DEPARTMENT.  Bring the current REGISTRATION for any cars you are getting stickers for. Your car must be registered at your Cheverly address. The parking stickers cost $1.
