Nebraska Motor Vehicle Power of Attorney Form


A Nebraska motor vehicle power of attorney allows the person who created the document (the licensee) to appoint another person (the attorney-in-fact) to perform tasks relating to a vehicle. If the licensee is a business, they must include its name and mailing address. Similarly, if the attorney-in-fact is a firm, they must enter the same information (i.e., its name and mailing address). The licensee can appoint more than one person as the attorney-in-fact. In this case, the licensee can include information for up to two (2) people in the form. If they wish to add another person, they must enter their name and personal details on a separate piece of paper and attach it to the document.

The licensee and attorney-in-fact must discuss the assigned responsibilities and limitations of the form before signing. Wrongful decisions made on the attorney-in-fact’s behalf can result in a lawsuit or financial debt. Therefore, the person representing the licensee should know how to perform the vehicle-related duties beforehand. The form allows the representative to sign documents for the owner, apply for a title and registration, pay fees or taxes, and receive confidential information about the vehicle.

A licensee only uses a motor vehicle power of attorney for car, truck, or van-related duties. If the task does not involve the vehicle, the licensee must use another power of attorney. For example, a durable or general power of attorney form covers financial-related responsibilities. A tax power of attorney gives the attorney-in-fact permission to file and review the vehicle owner’s taxes.

If the licensee wants the attorney-in-fact to handle one-time finance or tax duties, they should use a motor vehicle power of attorney. However, if the financial or tax-related tasks are ongoing OR the licensee wants the attorney-in-fact to have power after their death or incapacitation, they should use a durable, general, or tax power of attorney. The licensee can create a new form to appoint a new representative at any time. If they wish to terminate the original copy, they must complete and sign a revocation form.

For the Nebraska of Motor Vehicles (NEDMV) to recognize the form, the licensee must complete, sign, and submit it. Once received, the NEDMV files it in the licensee’s records, thus allowing the appointed attorney-in-fact to act on their behalf. The motor vehicle power of attorney can be scanned and emailed to or faxed to (402) 471-4024 or (402) 471-3920. Additionally, the licensee can mail it to the following address:
