Organ DonationEnsuring that all motorists are trained and licensed is an important function of every state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). But perhaps the most significant part of most states' driver licenses is the organ donor designation, which can mean the difference between life and death for a needy recipient.
Our team of researchers give you quick, easy access to a wealth of information on the importance of organ donation, the need to make your intentions clear, how to register as a donor through your state's DMV, and the right to decline being a donor.
Most states give drivers and ID card holders an option to indicate on their license or card whether they wish to donate their organs and tissue in the case of their death. We'll tell you how this process works in your state and even supply the forms you need.
Organ donation can mean the gift of life for children, women, and men who are on organ and tissue waiting lists. Unfortunately, the people in need far outnumber available donors. That's why your state's donor registry is so important―and why most states' DMVs make it so easy to register.
It is said that the organs and tissue from one donor can save nine lives and improve the quality of dozens more. With the help of your state's DMV, you can make your donor preference official―and we'll show you how to do so without hassle.Choose a State:
