    Register Online or In Person

    When you are applying for, renewing, or replacing your driver's license or your identification card at a driver's license office, you can indicate on your application that you would like to be a donor.

    Donors must be at least 18 years old. If you're under that age, your parent or guardian must issue their consent.

    Or, apply online to be on the donor registry hosted by the Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency (MORA).

    Be sure to tell your closest relatives of your decision; they will need to sign the donor paperwork upon your death and have the final say on your donation.
