The New Mexico motor vehicle power of attorney (Form MVD-11020) grants an agent (the “attorney-in-fact”) the authority to perform vehicle-related acts on behalf of the vehicle owner. The power of attorney (POA) form must name the appointed attorney-in-fact and include the vehicle’s make, model, model year, and identification number (VIN).
Once the document has been executed by the vehicle owner, their representative will be authorized to apply for and renew the vehicle’s registration, certificate of title, and license with the Motor Vehicle Department (MVD). Under this agreement, the attorney-in-fact may also be permitted to negotiate and complete the vehicle’s sale. The attorney-in-fact may be required to sign and have the affidavit portion of the POA notarized to prove their identity and authority when carrying out certain actions. The POA will remain effective for thirty (30) days unless revoked in writing before the termination date.
