You can find answer to this and several other similar question in Sticky post by Dolly. However, I am posting this again for your convenience.


Dolly Wrote in her post:
Registration (rego) includes a compulsory insurance, known as the Green Slip, to cover Injury to third parties. It covers the owner or driver of the motor vehicle in the event of an accident against any legal liability or obligation that they may have to anyone that they injure, it only covers personal injury and NOT damage to other property, cars etc. Most people take out insurance on top of this, similar to the cover they would have had in the UK.

Fully comprehensive insurance is usually cheaper than you would expect to pay for the same cover in the UK, and if you find the right company they will honour your UK no claims (make sure you brought evidence of it with you). You may not be required to produce evidence of your no claims to take out the insurance, but if you have an accident you are likely to be asked for it, so it is advisable to keep it on file.

Hi Richie,

the car had registration onit when we picked it up dont have to do anything till june next year so we will worry about that then, what car did you get I bet you are looking forward to picking it up. We are loving it here finally we feel we have found the place we are meant to be but saying that Skype has a lot to answer for that has been a godsend.

good luck and keep in touch

does car insurance in Australia use a 'no claims bonus' system like the uk and if so will they accept proof of claim free driving from the UK?

Yes it does.

We made sure to get letters from our insurers in the UK or something that stated our no claims bonus. However when we signed up here for car insurance they simply took our word for it and we didn't have to prove it - not sure if that is usual or not.

Regards,
Karen
