A Pennsylvania motor vehicle power of attorney form is a document that designates an agent to manage tasks related to a vehicle on behalf of the owner with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. This authorization enables the agent to perform functions like registration, titling, and other DMV-related activities for one specified vehicle.
Necessary for instances where the owner cannot personally handle these affairs, the form requires details of the vehicle and both the principal’s and agent’s names and addresses. While only the agent’s signature is mandatory, notarization is advised for authenticity. The form must be sanctioned by the Motor Vehicle Department before the agent can act.
Signing Requirements: The principal or another individual may sign the power of attorney on their behalf, as directed by the principal.
Notarization & Witnesses: Must be notarized by a notary public and two witnesses (§ 5601).
