The DVLA have made it compulsory for drivers applying for a new licence or a replacement licence to answer whether they wish to be an organ donor.
At present the question has been voluntary but as of the 1st August drivers must answer whether they want to register their details on the NHS Organ Donor Register to donate their organs following their death.
The waiting lists for organ transplants are endless and there are desperately ill people who could start a whole new life with a transplant. The aim is to get people to stop avoiding the question and make a decision either way.
