Massachusetts Motor Vehicle (RMV) Power of Attorney Form

The Massachusetts Motor Vehicle (RMV) Power of Attorney outlines a number of key provisions relating to the delegation of one or more motor vehicle-related tasks from the owner of a vehicle (the “principal”) to a party they entrust. Given that the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles has not issued a particular form that must be used to use to signify such a request, principals can instead use a form that comprehensively covers the details of an arrangement of this nature. The following is a sample of some of the tasks the principal can assign to the agent with the form:

  • Transfer a title
  • Apply for registration and title
  • Request information regarding a vehicle
  • Request verification of a vehicle
  • Purchase or sell a motor vehicle
