The Missouri motor vehicle power of attorney form (Form 4054) is used to assign vehicle-related authority to a representative (the “attorney-in-fact”) to act on behalf of the vehicle’s owner. Through this document, a representative may be appointed to transfer ownership, register, and title a motor vehicle. The vehicle’s year, make, and identification number must be provided. Registration and titling are processed by the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR). In the event of the total loss of an insured vehicle (due to a collision or other accident), a power of attorney may be required to allow the owner’s insurance company to take possession of and sell the totaled machine.
