1. Start Your Quote:
Currently more than 2,000 Virginians are awaiting an organ transplant, and donors are in high demand.
Being a donor doesn't cost anything to you or your family; it is considered a gift. Every major religion located in the United States approves of organ and tissue dontation. Being a donor won't delay or alter your funeral plans; open-casket funerals are still possible. Donors receive the same level of medical care as non-donors.
In Virginia, you must be at least 18 years old to be an organ donor. If you're younger than that, you must get written permission from your parent or guardian.
You may sign up online to become a donor by following the instructions provided.
Register by mail by completing the donor form and mailing it to:
- Attn: Nancy Hurst
- 1864 Concert Drive
- Virginia Beach, VA 23453
You can change your donor status online for free.
You may also do so at a DMV customer service center. But, you'll be charged for a replacement license or permit unless you change your donor status when renewing your document.
