What is a Green Slip?

A CTP Green slip ensures the owner of the motor vehicle and any other person who at any time drives the vehicle (whether or not with the consent of the owner) against liability in respect of death of or injury to a person caused by the fault of the owner or driver of the vehicle in the use or operation of the vehicle in any part of the Commonwealth of Australia (whether or not on a public street).

Green slip is a general term for the Compulsory Third Party Insurance and is also known as CTP green slip, Green slip insurance, and CTP insurance.

You can not register your vehicle until you have purchased a green slip. No one can drive in this state without it. In NSW a trailer is not required to have a greenslip as it is covered by its owner’s car green slip.

Under the Motor Accidents Compensation Act 1999 No 41 (Clause 17):

If an incorrect greenslip premium has been paid, insurers are entitled to claim the difference between what was paid and what should have been paid.
