The Hawaii motor vehicle power of attorney form (DMVL596-2-09) is used by an individual (the “owner”) to grant a third-party (the “attorney”) authority to execute legal documents related to their motor vehicle. The attorney is able to sign for the owner when applying for registration, Certificates of Title, or other certificates for the owner’s vehicle. It should be noted that the attorney is not required to be a lawyer, and in this case, the term attorney is being used to describe the representative. In the event of multiple owners for the same vehicle, they must both provide their information and signature for the instrument to be deemed valid. A Hawaii motor vehicle power of attorney form is limited to a single vehicle per form.
