What is a Green Slip?

Greenslip is the term commonly used in NSW for Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance. A greenslip is an insurance policy that covers the vehicle owner for people killed or injured in a motor vehicle accident involving their vehicle.

A greenslip is a legal requirement for all motor vehicles registered in NSW, except trailers, which are covered by the towing vehicle. A greenslip does not cover damage to cars or property.

Why Do I Need a Green Slip?

CTP greenslips are mandatory in NSW because even very good and experienced drivers are sometimes involved in road accidents.

CTP insurance provides protection from the burden of paying for somebody else’s injuries, especially if they are serious and lifelong. Many people do not have the financial resources to pay the considerable legal and health-related costs of treating somebody’s serious injuries from a vehicle accident.

Why Compare Prices?

It is worth comparing greenslip prices before renewing registration. Prices vary and the cheapest insurer last year may not be the cheapest insurer this year. Insurers charge different prices depending on customer risk levels.

Insurers use their own weightings to different risk factors to determine the premiums they will charge. Two insurers include At-Fault Driver Cover with their greenslips as an added benefit.

Most driving is thoughtless

Next time you get in the car and start driving, ask yourself what you are thinking about. It probably won’t be about driving. Yet 80% of crashes happen because drivers are not paying attention for up to 3 seconds. How come we don’t pay attention? A big part of that is because we feel safe.

Hydrogen v electric

While Australians are still getting to grips with electric vehicles (EVs), the next big fuel may be hydrogen. Hydrogen is used in fuel cell vehicles (FCEVs), which convert the gas to electricity.
