Good news car owners of NSW! I just got $140 back from Service NSW for my two cars. This article will show you exactly what you need to do in order to get your refund.
Background to the NSW CTP refund programme
The NSW State Government has made a change to compulsory third party (CTP) insurance for vehicles in NSW. They have reduced the cost of CTP Green slips and you are likely eligible for a refund on your 2017 CTP Greenslip by way of refund.
Are you eligible?
To be eligible for a refund, you need to have been the owner of a private registered vehicle as of midnight 30th November 2017. You may also be eligible if you bought or renewed your CTP insurance before 1st December 2017.
How to claim your CTP refund in NSW
Simply visit the CTP refund page on Service NSW. You will need to signup for an account and have your number plate, drivers license and date of birth handy. You will then need to do a lookup of your car(s) via their number plate.
The website talks about entering in a reference number Service NSW may have sent you, though you do not need this if you have your number plate handy.
How your CTP refund will be paid to you
Service NSW will pay the refund via Bank Transfer. Simply enter your BSB and account number at the end of the process to be paid within 5 business days.
