Donation Process



Ways to register.

Anyone can say YES to organ, eye and tissue donation. If you haven’t already said YES at the BMV, there are three easy ways to register.


Register online. You will need a valid Ohio driver license or state identification card.


Say “YES” at the BMV when you receive or renew your driver license or state identification card. You should also talk to your family about your wishes so they can help honor your decision.


Complete and mail a Donor Registry enrollment form.
