Frequently asked questions

  • What is changing for me?

    Soon new information will be required to be provided to purchase a new Green Slip.

  • Why is it changing?

    These changes are being introduced by all NSW CTP insurers and are designed to improve your buying experience and reduce the time taken to register your vehicle.

  • How will I benefit from this change?

    The changes are designed to benefit you in three ways:

    1. Less information will have to be provided to purchase a new Green Slip
    2. Your Green Slip 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 Green Slip receipt to be presented.
    3. Ensuring you are charged the correct premium. Your premium will be based on the registration details retrieved from RMS, plus other information that we will ask you for.

    Note: You should ensure your records are complete and accurate with RMS. Confirm the information on your registration papers and advise RMS straight away if there are any discrepancies. This will ensure that you are charged the correct premium.

  • What do I need?

    You will need to provide two pieces of information to assist us in identifying you and your vehicle. The details can easily be located on your RMS registration papers, so make sure you have them handy.

  • How can I prepare for this change?

    Make sure the details showing on the registration papers are correct. If they are not correct you may be charged the incorrect CTP premium. If any of your registration details require updating please contact RMS on 13 22 13 prior to purchasing your Green Slip. We won't be able to update your registration details for you.

  • What information do I need to provide to purchase a Green Slip to renew my registration?

    1. Your RMS Billing Number and
    2. Your Plate Number
  • What information do I need to provide to purchase a Green Slip to start a new registration?

    2. The NSW Driver or Rider Licence, NSW Photo Card Number or RMS Customer Number of the vehicle operator

    You can provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), Engine Number or Chassis Number.

  • What if I don't have the information required for my Green Slip?

    If you don't have the required information, you will still be able to obtain a Green Slip quote but you will not be able to purchase a policy. You can request this information from RMS by calling RMS on 13 22 13 or on the web at www.myrta.com

  • What if I have recently acquired a vehicle that is due for registration?

    If the vehicle has only recently been acquired, please ensure that you have completed the transfer of registration with RMS at www.myrta.com or a Green Slip may not be able to be purchased.

  • Will my CTP details be sent electronically to the RMS?

    Yes, your CTP details will be sent electronically to RMS immediately for both new and existing registrations, removing the need to provide RMS with a hard copy Green Slip or receipt.

  • I have just moved to NSW. How do I purchase a Green Slip?

    If you have just moved to NSW and your vehicle is still registered interstate, you will still be able to purchase a Green Slip to start your registration in NSW. You will need to provide us with the vehicle's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) , Engine Number or Chassis Number – mention Blueslip?

    If you have just moved from interstate or overseas and have bought a vehicle that is registered in NSW, you should ensure that the registration has been transferred into your name (transfer of registration) with RMS. Once completed, you will be covered until the expiry date by the Green Slip included with the vehicle's existing registration.

    If the vehicle's registration is due for renewal, you may be unable to purchase a Green Slip until the transfer of registration has been completed with RMS.

  • Will there be any changes to my CTP cover?

    No, there are no changes to your benefits under the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Personal Injury Insurance Scheme.

  • Will I still receive an offer to renew my Green Slip?

    Yes, you will still receive a Green Slip renewal notice 4 to 6 weeks prior to your registration expiry date.

    If any of your registration details need changing, please contact RMS on 13 22 13 prior to purchasing your Green Slip. We are unable to update your registration details for you.

  • Is my privacy protected with this change?

    Yes, we will only be using information from RMS that is necessary to provide you with an accurate Green Slip quote. This information has always been required to be provided when purchasing a CTP policy.
