Purchasing a Green Slip to be Faster and Easier from 23 March 2015

Friday, 06 February 2015

Update

In our news article of 6 February we announced changes to the process of purchasing a green slip. The changes were to be implemented from 23 March 2015.

There has been a delay in the implementation of the changes.

Agreement between the insurers and the RMS as to the basis on which information is exchanged has not been finalised.

At this stage it is not clear when agreement will be reached nor when the changes will be implemented.

It is hoped that the delay will only be for several weeks.


From 23 March 2015 the process of purchasing a green slip will be streamlined to make it faster and easier.

Rather than enter all your vehicle details into the insurers system, you will be required to enter two pieces of information to identify your vehicle and the rest of the information will be downloaded automatically from the RMS. The information downloaded from the RMS will include the details on your vehicle but will not include personal information such as your name, address or demerit point status.

Once you have purchased your green slip, details will be transferred immediately to the RMS (including new registrations which were previously reliant on hard copy receipts).

All seven green slip insurers are adopting the new system.

There are several benefits from the new system. You will need to enter less information, making the process faster and easier. You can complete your registration immediately after you have purchased a green slip and because your vehicle details are being downloaded from the RMS, quotes will be more accurate.

Samples of the information you will need to provide to identify your vehicle from 23 March 2015 are set out below.

Green Slip Renewal

  1. Your RMS Billing Number; and
  2. Your plate number.

New Registration

  1. Your vehicle’s VIN, Engine &/or Chasis Number; and
  2. Your NSW driver or Rider Licence, NSW Photocard Number or the RMS Customer Number of the registered operator.

If you don’t have your registration papers

  1. Your plate number; and
  2. Your NSW driver or Rider Licence, NSW Photocard Number or the RMS Customer Number of the registered operator.

For renewals or if you don’t have your registration papers you can also use your vehicles VIN, Engine or Chasis Number as part of the identifying information.

The new system will not impact other areas of the CTP insurance scheme.

New 40km/h speed limit zone announced for Sydney CBD.

Tuesday, 27 May 2014

Roads and Freight Minister Duncan Gay yesterday announced a new speed zone for the Sydney CBD, reducing the speed limit to 40km/h.

"The new 40km/h limit zone will be introduced by the end of this year and will operate in the area bounded by Hay, Kent, Pitt and Castlereagh Streets, and will connect with the current 40km/h area in The Rocks north of the CBD."

Minister Gay cited several facts as the basis for the decision:

  1. Between 2008 and 2014, there were 7 pedestrians killed in the CBD, including 3 just this year;
  2. More than 90% of trips made every day in the CBD are made on foot;
  3. A vehicle that hits a pedestrian at 50km/h is twice as likely to cause a fatality as the same vehicle travelling at 40km/h;
  4. A driver travelling at 40km/h also has a greater opportunity to avoid a crash and any impact will be less severe.

Minister Gay noted that pedestrians need to play their part in improving road safety in the CBD.

"Pedestrians should always cross at the lights, obey traffic signals, look both ways before they cross and stay alert by not getting distracted by phones or music" Mr Gay said.

In addition to fining drivers for breaking the new speed limit, we hope that police target pedestrians and cyclists for dangerous and irresponsible behavior.
