“We applaud Governor Hogan and Transportation Secretary Slater for their outstanding leadership, and the MVTA is proud to partner with them at this critical time.”

News Release, MVTA

WESTMINSTER, MD (Friday March 20, 2020) – Maryland’s extensive network of professional vehicle titling agencies is the best option for motorists who need vehicle tag and titling services, the president of the Maryland Vehicle Titling Association (MVTA) said this afternoon, in light of the announcement earlier today by Governor Larry Hogan that all Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) branches statewide will close indefinitely to help contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Beth Caro, Chair of the MVTA and the owner of Tag & Title Service of Maryland in Edgewater, said MVTA title agencies are considered by the state as “essential businesses,” and will remain open to help serve Maryland motorists.

“People can still get the tag and titling work they need to have done, safely and professionally,” said Caro. “Appointments are strongly recommended. We are working hand-in-hand with the state and the MVA to continue to provide these essential services to our citizens, conveniently and efficiently.

“We applaud Governor Hogan and Transportation Secretary Greg Slater for their outstanding leadership during this coronavirus crisis,” Caro added.  “The MVTA is proud to partner with them at this critical time.”

Caro said motorists can access the full list of authorized MVTA agencies on their website to find the locations that are most convenient.

A 501c6 non-profit organization, the MVTA was formed in 2011 to represent tag and title agents and other related industry professionals. All MVTA agents are licensed by the Maryland MVA.
