Check it out here.
He is asking how to do it above board, hence the suggestion of getting power of attorney. He is not curbsiding - he is not buying the car to flip to someone else without changing the ownership to make a quick buck.

Ben - not sure how it is today, but I know years ago an authorization letter was all that was required to allow you to sell on his behalf. I am not sure if Service Ontario would already have a form or tell you what is required on the document. People do sell cars to people who do not live close to each other and never meet so a sale can done remotely but obviously adds a more time and an extra factor to the transaction.
