You must show your Social Security Card the first time you apply for a NYS permit, driver license or ID card, when you renew

security number). If you are ineligible for a Social Security Card, you must present a letter from the Social Security
Administration (SSA) issued within 30 days of your application to DMV, confirming your ineligibility. You must also show the
INS documentation that the SSA used to determine that you are not eligible.

HOW TO ENROLL IN THE NYS DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH’S DONATE LIFE                     REGISTRY
If you are 18 years of age or older, you may enroll in the Registry through either DMV or DOH.

You can enroll through DMV with an MV-44 application form. Simply read the Organ Donation statement and sign and date the
Donor Consent Signature line. You can also enroll at renewal time by signing the Donor Consent line on your MV-2 renewal form.
As of July 22, 2008, your signature on an MV-44 or MV-2 constitutes legal consent for donation. Be sure to tell your family that you
have legally consented to be a donor upon your death. If you enroll through DMV, the words “ORGAN DONOR” will
automatically be printed on the front of your DMV-issued photo document.

If you enroll in the Donate Life SM Registry through the Department of Health, either by telephone at (866) 693-6667 or online at
www.nyhealth.gov, there will be no donor designation on your DMV photo document. You may, however, request to add or
remove this donor designation at any time by visiting your local DMV office. There will be no additional fee to have the
“ORGAN DONOR” legend added to or removed from your photo document, if requested as part of another license, permit or
non-driver ID transaction. If you request a change in donor designation on your photo document as an independent transaction,
there will be a $17.50 fee for your replacement photo document.

NOTE: Removing the donor designation from your DMV photo document does NOT remove your name from DOH’s donor
registry. You must contact DOH directly at the phone number or web address above if you want to remove your name
from the Registry.

NON-CDL CLASS C LICENSE
Effective July 26, 2005, a Class D license is valid to operate vehicles for which a non-CDL C license was previously required.
Applicants for an original non-CDL C will receive a Class D license; however, applicants seeking Farm (F or G) or Tow Truck (W)
endorsements will continue to receive non-CDL C licenses until programming changes are completed.

                             To use with the instruction sheet, MV-44.1, when applying for a:

 GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR PROOF OF IDENTITY
   Before NYS DMV will issue any photo document (learner permit, driver license, non-driver ID Card) for the first time, or if your
   document expired more than 2 years ago, you must show the following proofs to NYS DMV:
              Proof of your date of birth
              4 points of proof of name along with your Social Security Card, or, if you are ineligible for a Social Security Card, 6 points of
              proof of name plus a letter of ineligibility from the Social Security Administration (SSA) issued within 30 days of your application to
              DMV, which confirms your ineligibility, along with the INS/DHS documentation that the SSA used to determine that you are ineligible.
              All proofs of name must show the same name.
   If you already have and can show a valid NYS DMV photo document, that is all you need as 6 points of proof of name to get a new or
   different photo document. However, if DMV has no record of your Social Security Number, you will have to show your Social Security Card.
   To obtain an Enhanced Driver License (EDL) additional proofs are required to show US citizenship and NYS residency. See form
   ID-44EDL for a list of acceptable documents for these proofs.
In addition:
   At least one proof must have your signature on it.
   You must provide original documents, or documents certified by the agency that issued them. The only exception is: If DMV allows
   you to send the application by mail, send photocopies only .
   DMV will not accept more than one document of the same type proof. For example, 3 major credit cards count as only one credit card.
   DMV will accept only 1 INS/DHS document. The same INS/DHS document must be used for both proof of name and proof of date of birth.
   DMV will not accept documents with any alterations or erasures. We will confiscate all fraudulent documents and send them to DMV's
   Investigations Unit. This could result in criminal prosecution.
IMPORTANT: Making a false statement in an application or in any proof or statement in conjunction with it, or deceiving or substituting, or
causing another person to deceive or substitute in connection with such application, is punishable as a Class A misdemeanor pursuant to
Section 210.45 of the Penal Law for Non-Driver card applicants, and is a misdemeanor under Section 392 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law
for driver license applicants, and may result in the revocation or suspension of your license.
