What is a Greenslip?

Compulsory motor vehicle insurance

Your greenslip is a compulsory motor vehicle insurance policy that provides for compensation for people killed or injured in a road accident involving your 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.

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

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

  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.
