Idaho Vehicle Power of Attorney (ITD 3368)
An Idaho motor vehicle power of attorney (Form ITD 3368) is a single-page document completed by a vehicle owner or business (the grantor) to elect another person (the attorney-in-fact) to act on their behalf. By accepting the role, the attorney-in-fact agrees to handle vehicle-related matters for the grantor. The owner or business uses the form when they cannot (or do not want to) tend to the matters themselves.
Upon presenting the signed form to the Idaho Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV), the attorney-in-fact can take care of affairs relating to the vehicle, such as registration and titling. Additionally, the grantor completes a motor vehicle power of attorney if they want another person or entity, such as a dealership, to handle the buying or selling of the vehicle.
The form has two (2) purposes as it serves both vehicle and vessel owners. The grantor does not need a reason to cancel the document, meaning that they can revoke it at any time with a revocation form. If the grantor needs to make modifications (e.g., address, name, or phone number change), they must complete a new motor vehicle power of attorney. In other words, they cannot cross out and re-write sections of the original form. As soon as the grantor creates and signs the new document, the previous one terminates.
Signing requirements: Requires notarization ONLY if the grantor wants the attorney-in-fact to apply for a duplicate title.
