Power of Attorney:

Power of Attorney is a legal instrument authorizing one to act as the attorney or agent of the grantor (owner of vehicle).  This document may be used for the buying or selling of a vehicle, when issuing a duplicate title and if someone other than the owner of the vehicle is coming in to the office to obtain title and plates for the owner.


There are several different types of Power of Attorney forms.  The various types are as follows:


  • Specific/Limited Powers of Attorney.  Copies are not accepted.  These types of Power of attorney forms are limited to what is indicated on the document.   The form Dr2175 [pdf] is available in the motor vehicle office or may be downloaded.
  • General Power of Attorney.  A copy is acceptable in this case.  This document allows the attorney in fact to do all and every act.
  • Military Power of Attorney.  This type of Power of Attorney can be either specific or general.  It will state the type on the document itself.  If the document is a general Power of Attorney, a copy is acceptable.  If it is a limited Power of Attorney, a copy is not acceptable.
  • Secure Power of Attorney.  A dealer uses this type when waiting for a title from a lien holder or are waiting for a duplicate title.

Power of Attorney forms may not have any alterations or erasures.  If they have any alterations or erasures, the document is void.


If an individual has been named Power of Attorney on a specific Power of Attorney form, that individual may not assign Power of Attorney to another person.


If an individual has been named Power of Attorney on a General Power of Attorney form, they may assign Power of Attorney to another individual.  This Power of Attorney will be the Specific Power of Attorney.


When the grantor of the Power of Attorney form is deceased, the Power of Attorney is no longer valid.


An individual cannot sell and buy under the same Power of Attorney form unless it is a Secure Power of Attorney form # DR2174.
