Registering at DPS Offices
If you register to be a donor when you apply for or renew your driver’s license or identification card at your local DPS office, a “red donor heart” indicator will be embedded in the lower right hand corner of your license or identification card. Your authorization is activated immediately after your information is inputted into the Donate Life Texas Registry regardless of where you register: online, at the DPS or through the DMV.
If you wish to have a red heart on your driver’s license, simply indicate that you are a registered donor the next time you renew your license at DPS.
