Delaware has a very well organized Organ Donor Program. Started in 1974, the non-profit program is a collaborative effort between Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
When you apply for your driver's license or during any renewal application you can choose to become an organ donor. Your driver's license will have "organ donor" printed on the front in red letters. Your choice also becomes part of the Delaware Division of Motor Vehicle (DMV) database.
If you are not planning a trip to the DMV, you can become an organ donor by filling out an Organ and Tissue Donor Card and keeping the card with you at all times.
The Organ Donor form posted on the DMV website can also be used to update your record. You will need your driver's license number, state identification number, or Social Security number.
If you elect to become an organ donor through the DMV website, your information will automatically update on your driving record and you'll be mailed a Uniform Organ Donor Card, which you should always carry. During license renewal, the words "ORGAN DONOR" will appear on your new license in green letters.
Choosing to be an organ and tissue donor is a noble decision. Be sure to discuss your wishes with your family, friends, and doctor when you decide to be an organ donor.
