Virginia Motor Vehicle Power of Attorney (Form VSA 70)


The Virginia Motor Vehicle Power of Attorney (VSA 70) is a document administered by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles. It makes it possible for a motor vehicle owner/s (referred to as the Grantor/s) to name an Attorney-in-Fact who will be bestowed the authority to perform specific actions related to their motor vehicle “as the Grantor might or could do if personally present, with full power of substitution.” For example, a typical action a motor vehicle may use this form for is to authorize their Attorney-in-Fact to handle the transfer or registration of their motor vehicle.
