Organ and Tissue Authority

I’m already registered on my driver’s licence. I don’t need to do anything else.

Fact Summary: 
You need to join the Australian Organ Donor Register – state-based driver’s licence donor registries no longer exist.
Fact Points: 
  • If you previously registered to be a donor on your driver’s licence, you now need to join the Australian Organ Donor Register. It takes less than a minute.
  • You can no longer register to be an organ and tissue donor on your driver’s licence. State-based licence donor registries, whereby you registered to be a donor on your driver’s licence, no longer exist.
  • SA residents can however record their donation decision when applying for or renewing their driver’s licence, which is then transferred directly to the Australian Organ Donor Register.
