(b) A donor or other person authorized to make an anatomical gift under section 327-4 may make a gift by a donor card or other record signed by the donor or other person making the gift, or by authorizing that a statement or symbol indicating that the donor has made an anatomical gift be included on a donor registry. If the donor or other person is physically unable to sign a record, the record may be signed by another individual at the direction of the donor or the other person and shall:
(1) Be witnessed by at least two other individuals who are at least eighteen years of age, one of whom is a disinterested witness, who have signed at the request of the donor or the other person; and
(2) State that it has been signed and witnessed as provided in paragraph (1).
(c) Revocation, suspension, expiration, or cancellation of the driver's license or identification card issued to a donor shall not invalidate an anatomical gift.
