Michigan Motor Vehicle Power of Attorney (Form TR-128)


The Michigan Motor Vehicle Power of Attorney (Form TR-128) offers vehicle, watercraft, and mobile home owners the chance to appoint an Agent to act on their behalf to carry out relevant tasks. Once an owner of any one of these units completes this one-page document issued by the Michigan Department of State, their Agent will effectively be bestowed with the authority to sign their name to legal documents pertaining to the sale, purchase, or titling of their unit. In order for their request to be filed, the Department also requests that the owner provide a photocopy of their valid driver licence or state ID card to the Agent they name in the form.
