Organ donor

The Uniform Anatomical Gift Act allows a consenting individual to donate his or her organs and tissues upon death for the purpose of transplantation or medical research.

You may express your wish to donate your organs and tissues for transplant by designating the words "Organ Donor" to appear on your NJ driver license or non-driver identification card. This designation is for individuals 18 or older.

Register for organ donor designation
Organ donor registration is available online or in-person at your local MVC agency. When registering at an agency, you must present the required six (6) points of identification as well as verification of your address. Remember that you must confirm your decision each time you renew your license or non-driver ID.
