MD Car Inspection

I am trying to finalize the purchase of my soon to be previous vehicle and have a couple of questions.

Where do you guys recommend I get my Acura TSX inspected?
Reason I ask is bc there are a couple of potential issues:
1.It has tints (very light) albeit MD legal limit.

2. It has an emission check engine light. Here is the more important question, if I clear the codes prior to inspection will it still be denied?

Just for the record, the buyer is aware of the emissions light. The issue has already been netted out of the final purchasing price, therefore there is no attempt to deceive the buyer. I am just trying to finalize this purchase and move on.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I would clear the codes and take the car to a place that has little business. When does the car throw a code first start in the morning?

If so get it nice and warm. take it some where scheduled and wait. with in 30min to an hour your car should be done. and as long as the car stays warm (if a cold issue) then it should pass.
