If you cannot come to the service outlet in person
If your business owns the vehicle and none of its directors can be present, the person responsible for its registration must present the original of a document authorizing the person to act on its behalf.
If you are an individual, the person representing you for the registration will need to provide the original of the Power of Attorney (PDF, 181.5 ko) form completed by you.
If the vehicle is from outside Québec
A vehicle from outside Québec is considered to be an imported vehicle, which means there are other documents you will have to provide so that we can verify whether the vehicle can be used in Québec. Refer to the Registering a vehicle from outside Québec section for more information.
