who seeks an examination permit, special learner's permit, motorcycle-only examination permit, driver's license, motorcycle license, motorized bicycle license, or identification card or seeks renewal thereof, to either: (1) register as an organ
donor through the Donate Life NJ Registry; or (2) review information about the life-saving
potential of organ and tissue donation, and the consequences when an individual does
not make a decision to become an organ donor and does not register or otherwise record
a designated decision-maker.
In addition to promoting organ and tissue donation, the portal shall provide information
about the procedure for designating a decision-maker.
