NSW Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance, also known as a Green Slip, is mandatory and must be purchased before you can register your vehicle in NSW. CTP covers NSW drivers for the costs of a person’s injuries incurred in a motor vehicle accident.
If you have an enquiry regarding the saving message on your Green Slip, you can contact the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA).
The average price of CTP insurance is already lower in country areas than in metropolitan areas.
Not exactly. CTP is linked to the vehicle, not the owner, so when you sell your car and transfer ownership/registration, the CTP will automatically transfer with it.
TfNSW, formerly the RMS, is a NSW State Government agency with various responsibilities within the road and transport sector.
A Pink Slip is a safety inspection that most vehicles over five years old must undergo to ensure the vehicle is roadworthy. A Blue Slip is an inspection that all unregistered vehicles must undergo before purchasing a Green Slip and Registration. Safety checks can only be performed at authorised inspection stations .
Payment will reach the TfNSW within:
- 1 hour, if you pay online, by phone, or at a GIO Agency
- 2 business days, if you pay at an Australian Post Office
You need to tell us the age of the youngest driver of the vehicle, regardless of how often they drive the vehicle.
Not everyone's Green Slip will see a price reduction. However, they will receive other benefits when making a claim:
- weekly income payments (if time off work is required to recover)
- reasonable and necessary treatment and rehabilitation expenses
- commercial attendant care (for help needed around the home).
Please note: you can claim these benefits for up to 6 months only.
For more information on benefits for injured people, please visit the SIRA website.
