MAI Insurance is linked to the vehicle, not the owner. If you sell your vehicle, the MAI Insurance policy will be transferred to the new owner.
Similarly, if you purchase a registered vehicle the MAI Insurance will already be placed with a MAI insurer.
If you’ve recently purchased or sold your car, please ensure that you have completed the change of ownership with Access Canberra.
Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Personal Injury insurance, (also known as a Green Slip in NSW) is mandatory and must be purchased before you can register your vehicle.
Your Green Slip provides you and anyone who drives your vehicle, with protection against liability for injuries caused to others in a motor accident. It also covers your medical expenses and weekly payments for lost income for up to six (6) months should you have caused the accident and are injured. Conditions apply.
For further information visit the SIRA website
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 establish your registration by providing a vehicle identifier.
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 prior to purchasing a CTP policy. If you don't do this, you may not be able to purchase a policy.
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.
No, unfortunately there are no pensioner concessions on CTP. CTP legislation states that all CTP policies must be paid in full. However, there may be some concessions available on TfNSW registration fee for pensioners. Please refer to TfNSW for further details on pensioners.
If a Green Slip is being purchased to start a new registration, you will need:
The vehicle’s VIN, Engine and/or Chassis Number and
The NSW Driver or Rider Licence, NSW Photocard Number or TfNSW Customer Number of the registered operator
Payment Reference Number (located on your Green Slip)
Contact number and email address
Light vehicles (i.e. vehicles with GVM less than 4.5 tonnes) can insure and register for a 6 month term, in addition to 12 months. Both the Green Slip and Registration need to be paid or completed within 21 days of the registration due date. This is called the 'Use-by' date and 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.
Contact us and we can update your details for you.
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.
Payment of a Green Slip Online or by phone will result in an eGreenSlip being sent to TfNSW immediately. Payment at a post office will take up to 2 business days for the eGreen Slip to reach TfNSW.
You need to tell us the age of the youngest driver of the vehicle, regardless of how often they drive the vehicle – even if they only drive it once a year. They don’t have to drive the vehicle regularly.
