CTP / Green Slip Insurance NSW
What is CTP Green Slip Insurance?
- Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance, (also known as a Green Slip in NSW), must be purchased before you can register your vehicle in NSW
- It is mandatory as part of the NSW Motor Accidents Scheme, which compensates people in the community injured in a car accident
- It covers your liability, or whoever drives your car, for injuries caused to someone else in an accident, anywhere in Australia
- If your vehicle is not registered, you may be personally liable for any injuries you cause and other penalties may apply

How is the price of NRMA CTP Green Slip Insurance calculated?
We calculate your premium based on a number of factors such as, your vehicle's make, model and year, as well as your home location, how long you’ve been with us and if you have other car insurance policies. We also take into account the safety features of your vehicle.
We assume that the owners of all business use and commercial vehicles are entitled to claim an Input Tax Credit (ITC) on the GST included in the price of their CTP policy. This is reflected in the price of the CTP Green Slip as the ITC status of these policies is automatically assumed as yes.

- If you believe your ITC status is not correct you can complete the ITC Declaration Form
