The Ohio motor vehicle power of attorney (Form BMV 3771)w enables a person to appoint an attorney-in-fact to handle vehicle titling and other related assignments with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. This form cannot be used to grant the attorney-in-fact any other types of powers. Furthermore, the vehicle power of attorney can only be used for one (1) vehicle; the attorney-in-fact does not have the authority to sign anything or act on the principal’s behalf in connection with another vehicle. Once the attorney-in-fact has completed all titling duties, the power of attorney will become ineffective.
