Massachusetts Donor Registry Organ and Tissue Donor Program

When you apply for a Massachusetts driver's license or ID, you will have the opportunity to become an organ and tissue donor. By registering as an organ and tissue donor with the RMV, you will be entered into the Massachusetts Donor Registry, which is legal consent for donation. However, also share your decision to donate with your family and friends so that they know about your decision to become an organ and tissue donor.

Even if you are currently a registered donor, you still need to check "yes" on question 1 of the Class D, M, or D/M License and ID Card Application in order to remain in the donor registry.

A driver who is under the age of 18 may request to be an organ and tissue donor at an RMV office. You will need a completed Class D, M, or D/M License and ID Card Application signed by your parent or guardian. If you have any questions, please contact one of the organ donor organizations listed below.

Every day, 17 people in the United States die waiting for organ transplants. Currently, there are over 97,000 total patients waiting for an organ transplant in the United States. Thousands more await life enhancing tissue transplants.
