I'm not sure, but I think the state mandates the price of the state inspection.
And the place that does the inspection is prohibited from doing any work on your car, so they have no motive to fake the inspection to make extra profit.
That said, wait as long as you can to register your car in Maryland. The taxes for bringing an out-of-state car in are crazy (essentially, you re-pay the sales tax to Maryland). Get the car inspected in your home/previous state if you can.
