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.
We Can Save Lives Together
Since 2017, the state of Ohio has required high school health curriculums to include organ, eye and tissue donation education. We've made it as easy as possible for you to help students prepare to make an informed decision about registration.
All you need to do to get started is choose one of these two options:
Schedule a donation expert to teach for you, sharing information directly from Donate Life Ohio with all of your health students.
Request free materials from Donate Life Ohio designed specifically to help you teach the lesson yourself.
