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

Register for organ donor designation

Organ donor registration is available online or in-person at a motor vehicle agency. When registering at an agency, you must present the required 6 Points of ID well as verification of your address.
