If you are selling your vehicle to an individual but you cannot go with the person to a service outlet of the SAAQ, have yourself represented by someone you could easily reach in the event of a problem, or you can make this power of Attorney to the buyer himself to represent you selling the vehicle to himself.

Remember

You remain liable for the vehicle until it is registered in the buyer’s name. You would be responsible for paying traffic fines or for property damage caused with the vehicle as long as you are the owner of record. Best to check that the vehicle is no longer registered in your name before asking your automobile insurer to cancel a third-party liability insurance policy.
