Just bought a 1997 LMTV off GP, and the state of Maryland is a bit of a headache with respect to registration. Is anyone on the forum in MD, and if you have a vehicle too new (not old enough) to be registered historic, which route did you take?

I believe a FL title will be mailed to be within the month. Does FL have the "Former Military Vehicle" classification like Tx, or is there any way to get FL tags mailed to me? I see a LOT of shady looking cars driving around MD with FL tags, and cant help but think this must be for a reason (loophole).

As far as I can tell, the only choice I have in MD is to get a Class C commercial vehicle safety inspection, pass that, and then title/register as a normal 17,000lb empty weight stake body heavy duty truck (no discounts on registration costs, req's inspection, etc).

I have family in TX and FL.. and I'm in MD... your thoughts and advice are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Also, who are you using for insurance for limited use of your LMTV? So far the only quote I have is from Progressive for 100 mile radius usage, no mileage restrictions, but its liability only insurance. $375/yr.

Just updating this thread for anyone who’s searching for info. Just received my MD title. I went to a tag and title place in Halethorpe. No issues. I had my SF97 and the paper stating the transfer to me from gov planet.
