Or, you can register when you apply for or renew your driver's license, permit, or ID card at the DMV. Your choice will be noted on the front of your document, and entered into statewide online registry.
Register by mail by completing the DonateLifeVirginia.org Registration Form and mailing it to the address on the form.
You can change your donor status online for free using My DMV .
