Compulsory Third Party Personal Injury (CTP) Insurance, also known as CTP Green Slip Insurance, must be purchased before a car or motorcycle can be registered in NSW.

CTP Green Slip Insurance provides compensation for people injured in a motor vehicle accident, however, cover for injuries to the driver/rider who causes the accident are limited.

CTP protects the owner of the vehicle, or any other person who at anytime drives/rides the vehicle/motorcycle, against claims for liability in respect of the death or injury to a person caused by the fault of the owner or driver/rider of the vehicle/motorcycle found to be at fault. If you do not have a CTP Green Slip for your vehicle, you could be personally liable for an injury compensation claim which could reach millions of dollars.
