    Register as an Organ Donor in New Mexico

    You can join the New Mexico organ donor registry online, or in person at your local NM MVD office.

    Online

    To register online, you'll need to complete the online registration form at the Donate Life New Mexico website.

    In Person

    When applying for or renewing a driver's license or ID card, you can register as an organ donor. You'll be given a red heart sticker to affix to your driver's license or ID card. Those who already have a license or ID card may add their choice to become a donor by picking up a sticker from any MVD field office.

    You may also indicate your donor decision by completing a Uniform Donor Card and keeping it in your wallet or purse.

    NOTE: Donors must be at least 13 years old to register on their own. However, if you're between 13 years old and 15 years old, you'll need the consent of your parent of guardian.

    The Benefits of Organ Donation

    In New Mexico, there is a severe shortage or organ donors, particularly within the minority population. A new name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list approximately every 13 minutes. Thousands die each year due to the lack of organ donors in America.

    The good news is you can save the lives of up to 9 people as an organ donor. Signing up will offer hope to all those in need.
