Organ Donor
   The Uniform Anatomical Gift Act allows a

    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.
Frequently Asked questions
   Could there be any conflict between
    saving your life and organ and tissue
    donation?
    No. Donation cannot occur until after a
    person has died. In the event of an accident
    or emergency, physicians and nurses will do
    everything possible to try to save your life. In
    fact, the medical team treating you is always
    completely separate from the transplant
    team.
Cont.
   What organs and tissue can be
    donated?
    Life-saving organs for transplant include the
    heart, kidneys, lungs, pancreas, liver and
    intestines. Tissue such as bones, ligaments,
    and tendons are needed for surgical
    procedures to repair injured or diseased
    joints and bone. Donated corneas, heart
    valves and skin also improve the quality of
    life.
