NSW Compulsory Third Party Insurance

Compulsory third party (CTP) insurance (known as green slip in New South Wales) covers the cost of compensation claims if you (or anyone driving your car) causes a motor-vehicle accident that injures or kills you or other road users.

These other road users include other drivers, motorcyclists, passengers, cyclists and pedestrians.

In some states and territories there is only one approved provider of CTP insurance; NSW is one of the jurisdictions in which motorists can choose their CTP insurer.

You must have a green slip to register your vehicle in NSW (some vehicles – like trailers, caravans and trail bikes – are excluded).

What’s covered?

Your green slip can cover your legal liability for injuring or killing someone else in an accident that was your fault; instead of you paying them compensation, the underwriter, QBE, does.

At-fault driver cover

If you’re injured in an accident you cause, you may be eligible for up to six months of medical and rehabilitation expenses and income-support payments.§

Dependent relatives

If you depended – financially and/or for some service – on a relative who died in a motor accident, you can apply for compensation; and funeral expenses.§

§ Applies only to accidents that occur after 1 December 2017.
