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