What is a Greenslip?

Compulsory motor vehicle insurance

Your greenslip is an insurance policy that provides for compensation for people killed or injured in a motor vehicle accident.

A greenslip is a legal requirement for all motor vehicles registered in NSW, except trailers. Trailers are covered under the greenslip of the towing vehicle.

Greenslip is a generic term for Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance. Greenslips are also referred to as CTP greenslips, green slips, greenslip insurance, CTP and CTP Insurance.

When you purchase a greenslip you participate in two schemes in NSW:

  1. Third-party Insurance scheme, regulated since 1 December 2017 by Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017 and previously by Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999
  2. Lifetime Care and Support scheme, regulated by Motor Accidents (Lifetime Care and Support) Act 2006.

The Third-party Insurance scheme and Lifetime Care and Support scheme are explained on this site.
