Do both registered owners need to be present on delivery day?

    I'll be picking up my car sometime this week. I believe all the paperwork is done electronically through myTesla. When I take delivery of the car, is there any other paperwork that needs to be done (or any more signatures needed)?

    I plan to have both my wife and myself as registered owners but only I would be able to pick up the car as my wife is on travel.

    I don't know about Tesla's paperwork at delivery, but I've dealt with situations like this by having my wife sign a Limited Power of Attorney (POA) document. A Limited POA would give you the right to sign for her for a specifically described transaction in the document. You should be able to easily find a template for one on-line.

    Example:

    When I picked up my Model S they gave me a FedEx envelope to return the paperwork with my wife's signature.

    Likely depends on the state.

    The best person to ask, of course, is your DS. The source of truth! (mostly)

    Per my CA DS, both registered owners have to be present.
