A Tennessee motor vehicle power of attorney (Form RV-F1311401) names an agent to handle the car registration or titling process on an owner’s behalf. The trusted agent can be a person whom the vehicle owner knows, like a trusted family or friend. It can also be an entity, such as a car dealership where the owner purchases their vehicle.
Depending on the principal’s preferences, the attorney-in-fact may have other powers relating to the vehicle besides just title and registration authorities. For example, the agent might be able to engage in diverse transactions, including obtaining duplicate titles, requesting vehicle records, and buying/selling the vehicle.
