Oregon Motor Vehicle Power of Attorney (Form 735-500)

Updated June 02, 2022

An Oregon motor vehicle power of attorney (Form 735-500) is the documentation required by the Oregon Department of Transportation Driver And Motor Vehicle Services to appoint an agent to make decisions about your vehicle on your behalf. Only the principal vehicle owner may sign and execute this document since he or she will accept the responsibility of his or her agent’s actions. Usually, a principal will issue this paperwork, so the Agent can physically appear at the Oregon DMV to handle the titling and registration of a vehicle on behalf of that vehicle’s owner.

This document will not be considered valid unless it has been fully completed then signed and dated by the principal vehicle owner.
