As a consequence of reform to the NSW Workers Compensation Scheme, there have been two significant changes to the NSW CTP insurance scheme.
Effective from 1 September 2015, the Motor Accidents Authority (MAA) has been abolished. The functions of the MAA have been transferred to a new Authority, the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA).
Another new organisation, Insurance & Care NSW (icare) will be the service provider for the Lifetime Care and Support Authority.Add a comment Read more...

Our Match the Car to the Star free greenslip promotion has been run and won...four times.
We have given away four greenslips.
Even though the competition is over, you can still go to the Quiz, have some fun and test your memory to see which stars and cars you can match-up.
Our winners were:
Three of our winners opted to have the cost of their greenslip reimbursed, which we have done, and one winner opted for us to pay for their greenslip when it is due for renewal in October.
As a result of the win, one of our winners was able to get their unregistered vehicle back on the road.
Congratulations to all our winners.
It was a great pleasure to contact the winners with the news that they had won a free greenslip.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the promotion.
Many visitors tested their memory to match the car to the star, with varying degrees of success.
Whilst our competition is over we will keep the Quiz running.
You can test your memory at any time by going to our Quiz.
Keep an eye on the Quiz and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for future promotions.Add a comment

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
If you don’t have your registration papers
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.Add a comment

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:
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.Add a comment
