The option to donate is no longer available on your driver licence renewal form.
If you want to donate your organs and tissues for transplant after death, you need to register your decision with the Australian Organ Donor Register.
The Donor Register is the only national register for organ and tissue donation.
One donor can save or greatly improve the lives of 10 or more people.
As a donor, you can choose which organs (kidneys, heart, lungs, liver, and pancreas) and tissues (heart valves, corneas, and bone and skin tissues) to donate.
To register with the Donor Register, you:
- must be aged 16 years or older
- need to submit your personal details, and
- need to submit your Medicare card number.
You can also register your wish not to donate.
Donating is voluntary, but family consent is always needed before donation can go ahead, so remember to discuss your decision with family and close friends.
