How to Create a Vehicle POA in the UAE: A Step-by-Step Guide

A power of attorney (POA) for a vehicle is a legal document that allows you to appoint another person to handle transactions related to your vehicle on your behalf.

In this article, we will explain the purpose, benefits, and process of drafting a POA for vehicles in the UAE.

What is a POA for a Vehicle?
