Organ Donation in Pennsylvania
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), in conjunction with Donate Life, helps increase the donor pool by allowing you to register as a donor.
When you're at a PennDOT Photo Licensing Center to have your picture snapped for your driver's license or ID card, complete a donor card and hand it to the clerk; you'll be designated as a donor on your document.
If you're under 18 years old, you'll need a signature from your parent or guardian to register.
To add or remove the donor designation after being issued a license or ID card, complete the form that applies to your situation:
- Non-commercial Driver's License/Identification Car/Learner's Permit Application to Renew/Replace/Change/Correct (Form DL-901).
- Commercial Driver's License Application to Replace/Correct (Form DL-80CD).
Be sure to have the form notarized. You'll also be required to pay a fee (see fee chart at the bottom of the application).
Online registration is quick and easy. You must simply provide your driver's license or photo ID number, date of birth, and the last four digits of your Social Security number.Other Topics in This SectionTrue or False
Doctors don’t work with the same urgency to save your life if they know you’re an organ donor.
