If you are looking to register your vehicle in New South Wales, you’ll need first of all a greenslip. There are 6 providers of CTP Greenslip Insurance in New South Wales for you to choose from. They all provide the same basic cover but some have an added benefit called the driver-at-fault cover. Prices of greenslips are competitive and can vary significantly amongst insurers; it’s always a great idea to shop around.
If you are renewing your vehicle’s registration and your renewal notice from the RTA/RMS says “Inspection Required”, this means that you will need a Vehicle Safety Check (Pink Slip) and a greenslip to register your vehicle.
If you are transferring your vehicle from another state, or if you are re-registering your vehicle due to the vehicle’s registration being cancelled, you will need both a Safety and Identity Check (Blue Slip) and a greenslip to register your vehicle.
