Greenslip Scam Warning

Posted in Greenslips
Friday, 18 May 2012

The MAA has issued a warning about a greenslip scam.

The scam was uncovered after reports from two insurers and involves more than 1,000 ctp greenslip policies. The scam seems to be centered around the south western suburbs of Sydney.

Under the scam, purchasers are paying cash at inflated prices for greenslips obtained fraudulently. Victims loose their money and do not have a valid greenslip for their vehicle.

When purchasing a greenslip, it is critical to ensure you purchase the greenslip directly from one of the seven licensed insurers or from a reputable broker or agent. The price of the greenslip should be based on your vehicle and your details. If in doubt, contact the insurer to confirm the price and to confirm that the broker or agent is entitled to act for them.. Contact details for the insurers are set out on this website.

New Learner Driver Course

Posted in Licencing & Registration
Friday, 23 March 2012

The State Government announced this week that it will introduce a new course for learner drivers.

The course, which is still to be developed, will be aimed at giving learner drivers skills to become safer drivers.

A board of independent road safety experts and advisory panel will be appointed to make recommendations on the structure of the course.

Learner drivers who complete a safer driving course will have their log book requirements reduced from the current 120 hours to 100 hours.

Learner drivers will be able to combine the safer driving course with the three for one driving lessons concession to reduce their log book requirement to 80 hours.

We have reported on the review of registration label requirements for light vehicles in NSW.

The report and recommendations were expected by the end of 2011.

We checked on the status with the NSW Government, Better Regulation Office today.

Whilst the Better Regulation Office will not commit to a timeframe, it is likely that the report and recommendations will be released in the next few months. Depending on the recommendations, implementation will be some time later.
