Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance, also known as "Green Slip", is required in New South Wales so that you can register your vehicle.
What is CTP?
CTP protects you as a driver for personal injuries caused in an at-fault accident
Injuries to other road users including drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, motorbikes, scooters and pillion passengers caused by you as a result of an accident
Injuries from at-fault accidents anywhere in Australia
CTP insurance does not cover damage to your vehicle, other vehicles or property. Visit Car Insurance for more information.

Faster, easier NSW Green Slips are here
To buy a new Green Slip you simply need to provide us with two (2) pieces of information to help us identify you and your vehicle. These details are located on your RMS registration papers.
We use this information to retrieve your registration details from RMS, saving you time and ensuring that the correct CTP premium is calculated, providing the information is correct.
- You will need the listed information to buy a CTP Green Slip policy, however if you don’t have it we can provide you with a quote.
- You need to make sure the details listed with RMS are correct. Contact RMS to make any changes on 13 33 13 before arranging/paying your CTP Green Slip.
- You no longer need to provide RMS with a hardcopy of your CTP Green Slip. Confirmation is sent electronically to RMS immediately on receipt of payment.
The changes will benefit you in three ways:
- Less information will have to be provided to purchase a new Green Slip
- Your CTP details will be sent to Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) immediately so that you can register your vehicle straight away. This will include first time registrations that currently require a hard copy CTP receipt to be presented.
- Ensuring you are charged the correct premium. Your premium will be based on the registration details retrieved by RMS.
If you are purchasing a new Green Slip to renew your vehicle registration, you can simply provide us with:
- Your Billing Number and
- Your Plate Number
No problem. You can instead provide us with:
- Your Plate Number (registration renewal), or VIN or Chassis number (new registration), and
- Your NSW Driver or Rider Licence number, RMS Customer Number or NSW Photocard Number
Note: Other combinations of identifiers can be used. See our FAQs for more details
