Just got greenslip through gone up by $47 rang and asked why and it is life time cover if injured and not just for kids hit on crossings as advertised on radio and tv. Will show on your green slip as MCIS Levies*
*Medical Care Injury Services Levies. The levies fund ambulance, hospital, lifetime care and other services for people injured on motor vehicle accidents. These levies are GST exepmt. MMMMM is this a good thing or not sounds ok to me I suppose if god forbid any of us are injured and require full time care. I bet there is a catch some where certain amount per week possibly I dont know. Dont know what every one else thinks ????. Regards Steve M

Hi Motherhen et al,
I was of the opinion that greenslips were a species of abalone but it was misspelt in error.

Now I know better.

Here in WA our CTP is included in the rego cost, and managed by a semi govt trust.
Seems to work ok , surprisingly.

Cheers

Always ring around, plenty of threads on the bike forums that the renewals sent out go up heaps each yr, while other companies go down..

Sort of like they bait you with the cheapest, then up it each year, hoping you wont notice on the renewal.

The Motor Accidents Authority in NSW (I think maa.nsw.gov.au) lists all greenslip prices, with a comparator. So you can get the quotes at one web site.
Now I live outside Sydney it's much better as the prices are less about $50 in the country.

Yeah I live outside of Sydney now too - in Rockingham, WA - and I am paying less than half now to register my Cruiser in WA than I did in NSW.

Here you put your car over the pits once to register it and from then on you recieve your rego in the mail and you pay it.

No more pink slips - save at least $25 (or what ever they were)

No more green slips - save 100s of $

CTP is all included in the rego - and you get the same coverage as someone in NSW.

And nobody saying "oh here's a bit of rust, can't pass that. Go down to by bro's panel beating service and come back."

I miss the NSW system like I miss a toothache!

Gerry,

Mine was about the same - it is due about April. Still better than what I was looking at in NSW, from memory it was $25 for pink slip, about $300 for rego and the greenslip (with a NRMA discount) was around the $680 - total $1025!!.

Yeah, the older the car the more for the greenslip if I recall correctly. Also the cost of a WA Drivers Licence for 5 yrs is roughly the same as 1 yr NSW.

Ah well, this state more than makes up for the lower rego revenue by charging a fortune for stamp duty - lol!!

Just over $400 and I have everthing with nrma with 65% dicount 38 years old Greenslip is also with nrma thats for the hilux but is classed as a ute which I think is dearer cause they class is as commercial (I think) thats what I was told once. You can jump online to nrma's website and get an estimate which I did today and come up with the same price so fairly accurate.Do you work in area as well ??. I work at the joint between the new holden dealership and the caryards on the next corner at the lights. Its called Fort Dodge. Regards Steve

Nah I work in winston hills, based at a depo in seven hills (postie) But I live just a bit further down the road right next to the lakes scheme. The new Castlereagh rd deviation goes right past my house. I thought I saw the old Lux going down the northern rd a couple of months ago near the Llandilo area (ADI site). Passed me too quickly too try and recognise it from your pic.

Rego In NSW is now a lot cheaper than before.
My latest in September 2006 was $383 for rego of my 93 Range Rover and $287 for CTP.total $670.
Qld is much more expensive for a Range Rover at about $1k if I recall.
Competition has bought the green slip down.
I have never had to have rectification fora "pink"(inspection) slip( which is needed for cars over 4 years old) and I applaud the inspection system after seeing some of the Sh1tboxes on the road in Qld.

I pay about the $680 mark in Qld.
And I think a road worthy should be done on cars every 5 years.
It would get alot of the dangerous and illegaly mod'd cars off the road.

I fully agree with vehicles being inspected every couple of years - but they must be inspected properly. On one occasions I took my Cruiser in for a pink slip in Sydney, a young kid got in it, drove around the bloke and I paid my money - no proper inspection at all.

So if it's going to be done it needs to be done right.

You gotta love this country...

When are we going to get a government that will bite the bullet , and make all taxes, levies, licences, charges and rip-offs consistent across the states.

The states managed to completely screw up the national Road Rules attempt and have instantly started to foul up that piece of good work.

What is is about us Aussies that we put up with all this cr*p ???
