Oregon Motor Vehicle Power of Attorney

An Oregon motor vehicle power of attorney (Form 735-500) is a document that proves the owner of a car, truck, or van has authorized another person (the attorney) to handle concerns about the vehicle. The principal ought to submit the document to the Oregon DMV so that the agent would be able to handle the specified responsibilities. If the principal wants a corporation or firm to be able to conduct vehicle-related activities, they must input the corporation or firm's name rather than an individual's name.

When endorsing in place of the principal, the person or corporation must use the vehicle owner's name, next is the full name or business name. The following information should be included in the signature space:

  • Signature of the owner

  • Signature of the agent

  • If the agent is a corporation, the signature of the person in charge of the business representing the principal

  •  Signature of the principal authorizing power to the business

  • The company is authorized to make vehicle-related choices for the owner 

  • The owner signs the power of attorney. Next to their signature, they must write the phrase "owner."

The individual name or business acting on behalf of the car owner, the vehicle identification number and license plate number, and the vehicle owner's signature must all be included in the motor vehicle power of attorney. 

The form will be rejected by the DMV if the above is not met, making it impossible for the attorney to represent the owner. After signing the document, the owner is unable to make changes to it. They must fill out a new form if they want to authorize a new agent. To completely end the arrangement, they must also execute a cancellation POA.

Signing requirements: The owner of the vehicle must sign.
