Who needs CTP Green Slip insurance?
CTP Green Slip Insurance is compulsory for all motor vehicles registered in NSW. CTP insurance is not required for Trailers and Caravans (vehicles towed by a registered vehicle).
I have just moved to NSW. How do I purchase a Green Slip?
If you have just moved to NSW and your vehicle is still registered interstate, you will still be able to purchase a Green Slip to establish your registration by providing a vehicle identifier.
If you have just moved from interstate or overseas and have bought a vehicle that is registered in NSW, you should ensure that the registration has been transferred into your name prior to purchasing a CTP policy. Failure to do so could mean you will be unable to purchase a policy.
What happens when I sell my vehicle?
CTP insurance is linked to the vehicle, not the owner, so if you sell your vehicle, the CTP policy will be transferred to the new owner. The RMS automatically notifies the CTP insurer of this change.
Similarly, if you purchase a vehicle, the CTP insurance will already be placed with a CTP insurer. Remember to contact GIO with the details of your new vehicle and we can send you a Green Slip when your registration falls due for renewal.
If you have Motor Vehicle (not CTP) Insurance with GIO and you buy a new vehicle or sell your vehicle you need to contact us to let us know.
If you buy a new vehicle, you may wish to consider GIO for your Motor Vehicle Insurance. For more information about GIO Motor Vehicle Insurance please click here.
What if I'm eligible for the RMS automatic registration renewal?
If you are eligible for the RMS 'auto registration renewal' service offered to some Pensioners, you need to pay your Green Slip before the registration renewal date. After you pay your CTP, we recommend you check with RMS directly, to confirm if your registration has been renewed.
How do I finalise my registration online?
Can I pay for 6 months instead of 12 months?
If you have a light vehicle (vehicles with GVM less than 4.5 tonnes), you have the option to choose a 6-month or a 12-month term. As long as you pay for both the CTP Insurance and registration within 21 days of the due date, you can choose a 6 month term for the renewal of your CTP.
If it’s been more than 21 days since your registration was due, you can only choose the 12-month period, unless there are extenuating circumstances for us to accept the late payment.
