An Arizona motor vehicle power of attorney (Form 48-1001) is a legal document that grants authority to an appointed individual, known as the agent, to handle specific motor vehicle transactions on behalf of the vehicle owner, referred to as the principal.
This form is particularly useful when the principal is unable to personally act on vehicle registration, titling, or other related tasks with the Arizona Department of Transportation. Once executed, the appointed agent gains the legal authority to act on behalf of the principal in the designated motor vehicle matters.
Signing Requirements: Principal.
Notarization & Witnesses: Notary public or MVD Agent (§ 14-5501(D)).
