Knowing Your Way Around CTP
Compulsory third party insurance (CTP) or ‘greenslip’, as it’s most commonly known as in NSW, is something all drivers are legally required to have in all states within Australia. It provides cover for legal liability for injury and death as a result of an accident for which the insured is responsible – be it for other drivers, passengers, pedestrians or cyclists. In most states this is included in your registration fees, however if you’re from QLD or NSW you have the option of choosing a CTP provider. Click on your state from the menu to find out more.

Are You Covered?
It’s important to be aware that in an accident, CTP won’t insure you for any damage caused to you or any one else’s car or property. Therefore the safest way to protect yourself from nasty surprises is to consider comprehensive insurance over and above any imposed state regulatory cover.
