From Maryland’s Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA)

Maryland drivers can now add three emergency contacts to their driver's license so police will know who to call if an accident occurs. The emergency contact information is stored electronically on an individual's driver's license and will be available only to authorized law enforcement personnel.

You can go to MVA's website at and add your three emergency contacts in just a few minutes. Go to the website, click "On-line Transactions, then click "More" and then click "Emergency Contacts" to add your emergency contacts.
To perform this Emergency Contact Information transaction, you must be able to provide your Driver's License number, date of birth and PIN or last 4 digits of your social security number.

The emergency contact information system is available for individuals to list name, address and telephone number for up to three people.
