No matter of the number of drives you do, or the distance you go each time – getting the basic driving ergonomics right can be a real life saver. This infographic has been created to show you some of the initial, basic steps you can take to ensure you have the correct set up in your driver’s seat.
Whichever way you go in terms of insurance options, driving safely should always be in the forefront of your mind when you’re on the road, starting with you, the driver. The safest way to insure yourself is with a fully Comprehensive Car Insurance policy. At a minimum, all Australian drivers must have Compulsory Third Party (CTP) or Greenslip Insurance; however it is important to remember that, unlike a comprehensive policy, CTP insurance will not cover you for any damage you cause to other people’s vehicles or property.
CTP or Greenslip Insurance will only protect you if you have an accident where you are at fault, and anyone else involved in the accident is injured or killed. ‘Anyone’ includes the passengers inside any of the vehicles involved, drivers, pedestrians and cyclists.
The process of getting this insurance does vary between states. In NSW you must pre-organise your CTP insurance with an insurer of your choice before you register your vehicle. In QLD, when you pay your vehicle registration you can nominate which insurer you would like to provide you with CTP insurance. In all other States your CTP insurance is automatically included in your vehicle registration fee.
