In some cases, California requires an odometer disclosure or a power of attorney when transferring ownership of a vehicle or vessel. The DMV website provides a form (REG 262) for a power of attorney. However, the form for an odometer disclosure (REG 262) is printed on security paper in order to comply with federal regulations and is not available online. Obtain this form by calling the DMV's Automated Telephone Service to have a form mailed to you. Alternatively, the DMV can mail you a Vehicle/Vessel Transfer and Reassignment Form (REG 262), which combines an odometer disclosure, bill of sale and power of attorney in a single-page form.
