A Minnesota motor vehicle power of attorney form is a document that a vehicle owner can use to appoint someone else to handle matters involving their motor vehicle with the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Driver and Vehicle Services Division. This is a type of limited power of attorney and is only effective for registering and titling a motor vehicle in Minnesota.

Enter the Full Name of the Vehicle Owner delegating this Power of Authority on the first blank line. On the second blank line, record the Name of the Agent who will assume Principal Authority over the Vehicle Owner’s vehicle. Now locate the word “Note” (printed in Bold). if the Principal is an individual, then document his or her Birth Date using the first three lines following the phrase “Date of Birth.” Once this task is completed, enter the Principal Vehicle Owner’s Social Security Number using the last three blank lines in this statement. If the Principal is a Business Entity, leave this statement blank and proceed to the next one. If the Vehicle Owner delegating Power through this form is a Business Entity, then enter its Federal Entity Identification Number on the blank space following the phrase “Federal ID Number”
