The New Mexico motor vehicle power of attorney form grants permission to a designated representative to act on behalf of the principal (owner of the vehicle). Also known as Form MVD-11020, a vehicle power of attorney document means that the principal does not have to deal directly with New Mexico’s Motor Vehicle Division. Instead, the attorney-in-fact will present themselves (with proper identification, this form, and any other required forms) at the MVD and can complete all title or registration needs for the principal. This type of POA is limited in nature; it is not affected by incapacitation but it does expire thirty (30) days after execution thereof (or at the principal’s behest).
