How it works
If you, or anyone driving your car, causes an accident in which someone else is injured your CTP covers the cost of their compensation claim.
This includes other drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycle riders. It doesn’t cover damage to vehicles.
In South Australia, your vehicle is automatically allocated to an approved CTP insurer when you register it.
Your CTP Insurance premium is paid as part of your vehicle registration and is set by South Australia’s CTP insurance regulator (the regulator).

QBE will use personal information submitted during registration to provide you with your CTP insurance policy.
