The Green Slip Guide

Before you can register any vehicle in NSW you must buy a compulsory third party (CTP) personal injury insurance policy - a Green Slip.

CTP Green Slips provide compensation for people who are injured in a motor vehicle accident.

    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.

  • 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.

    For more information on how we handle your privacy, please visit our website at: http://www.shannons.com.au/privacy/ or contact 13 46 46

  • Why does my quote not match that from the Green Slip Calculator or another website?

    Quotes from other websites, including the Motor Accidents Authority's Green Slip Calculator, SIRA Green Slip Check are estimates based on information provided by you. The Green Slip quote from us uses information held by RMS. Quotes may not match if they are based on different information.

  • How can I register a complaint?

    At Shannons, we take your feedback seriously. You can submit a complaint or feedback by visiting the Dispute Resolution page.

  • What if I'm eligible for the RMS automatic registration renewal?

    If you are eligible for the RMS 'auto registration renewal' service offered to some Pensioners, you need to pay your Green Slip before the registration renewal date. After you pay your CTP, we recommend you check with RMS directly, to confirm if your registration has been renewed.

  • How do I lodge a CTP Claim?

    Go to https://www.gio.com.au/reference-pages/ctp-claims-reference.html.

    CTP Insurance is Underwritten by AAI Limited ABN 48 005 297 807 trading as GIO. Shannons Pty Ltd ABN 91 099 692 636 acts as an agent and authorised representative of GIO.

  • What is CTP and what does it cover?

    Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Personal Injury Insurance, also known as a Green Slip, is mandatory in NSW and must be purchased before you can register your vehicle.

    CTP covers your liability and the liability of anyone else who drives your vehicle, for injuries caused to others in a motor accident. It also provides you with access to medical expenses and weekly payments for lost income, for up to six months if you're injured and you're at fault. Conditions apply.

    For further information go to https://www.sira.nsw.gov.au/insurance-coverage/CTP-insurance-Green-Slips/what-is-a-green-slip.

  • How do I qualify for a Shannons CTP Green Slip?

    You must hold a current motor insurance policy with Shannons for the same vehicle (C or TPPD).

  • Why does my older historic vehicle not have the CTP go through to the RMS automatically?

    Some older vehicles do not have a VIN or it is shorter than the usual number so this can impact the transmission of the eGreen Slip to the RMS. In these cases, you may need to take your paid Green Slip into the RMS to renew your registration.

  • Why does the RMS tell me my CTP is with GIO when I am with Shannons?

    Shannons CTP is issued by GIO, one of the 6 licensed insurers approved by SIRA to provide CTP cover in NSW. Shannons acts as an authorised agent of GIO.

  • Can I renew my CTP term to 6 months?

    Light vehicles (i.e. vehicles with GVM less than 4.5 tonnes) can insure & register for a 6 month term, in addition to 12 months. Both the Green Slip and Registration need to be paid or completed within 21days of the registration due date. This is called the 'Use-by' date & is shown on the Green Slip. If the Green Slip 'Use-by' date has expired (i.e. exceeded 21 days), then the customer can only register for a 12-month period, unless there are 'extenuating circumstances' for us to accept the late payment.
    Call us on 13 46 46 and we can update your details for you.

  • What happens to my CTP when I sell or buy a vehicle that is registered?

    CTP insurance is linked to the vehicle, not the owner, so if you sell your vehicle, the CTP policy will be transferred to the new owner.

    Please ensure that you have completed the change of ownership with The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) at service.nsw.gov.au as the RMS automatically notifies the CTP insurer of this change.

    Similarly, if you purchase a registered vehicle, the CTP insurance will already be placed with a CTP insurer.

  • Safety checks and inspections?

    Safety checks can only be performed at authorised inspection stations, and the results are sent to Roads and Maritime Services electronically.
    Click here for more information.

    Pink Slip: To renew registration in NSW, most light vehicles that are more than 5 years old, must undergo a safety check (pink slip) to ensure they meet minimum safety requirements.

    Blueslip: All unregistered light vehicles need a blue slip inspection before they can be registered.

  • How do I cancel my CTP Green Slip?

    There are only some circumstances under which you can cancel your CTP Green Slip, including the total loss of the vehicle and Unused Green Slip. Call us on 13 46 46 and we will help you with any cancellation. To enable us to process a mid term cancellation, you will need to supply a confirmation of cancellation letter from the RMS.

  • How can I choose to receive my CTP Insurance documents electronically?

    You can receive your CTP policy documents via email and we may send you reminders via sms. You can consent to receiving your CTP policy documents electronically when setting up your CTP insurance online or when you contact to set up or renew your CTP policy. All you need to provide is a regularly used email address and mobile phone number. If you consent to receiving your CTP policy documents electronically you will not receive policy documents and communications via post.
