Provided all your information matches with that of the RMS, it can take up to an hour for your payment details to be transferred electronically. This is known as an Electronic Green Slip, or e-Green.
We recommend that you wait an hour before contacting the RMS to complete your registration.
If your payment details haven't transferred successfully, and you don't have a copy of the CTP Green Slip or a CTP policy receipt, the RMS won't be able to process your registration.
The RMS will ask you to contact us to resend a copy of your Green Slip. Please have your registration papers on hand to confirm your details.
You'll need to contact the RMS to make changes to your CTP Green Slip, including:
- Your address
- Owner of the vehicle
- Vehicle details such as your registration number
The RMS will process these changes and our records will automatically be updated.
You can cancel your CTP Green Slip if you’ve cancelled the registration of your vehicle. Otherwise when buying or selling a vehicle, the CTP Green Slip is transferred to the new owner until the next renewal.
If you move interstate, you’ll need to cancel the vehicle’s NSW registration and CTP Green Slip in order to re-register in another state.
To cancel your CTP Green Slip, visit a Service NSW Centre to first cancel your registration. Once you’ve received documents from Service NSW, please complete the CTP cancellation and send all relevant documentation to the reply paid address noted on the form, or email the documents to firstname.lastname@example.org
