CTP Insurance WA
WA CTP Insurance
In Western Australia, the WA government provides compulsory third party (CTP) insurance. The Motor Injury Insurance Scheme (MIIS) in WA is a fault-based scheme. If it was not your fault, CTP insurance WA covers your claim for injuries caused to someone else in a road accident. If it was your fault, it does not cover your injuries unless they are catastrophic.
After 1 July 2016, the Catastrophic Injuries Support Scheme covered people catastrophically injured in a road crash in WA. Since the MIIS did not used to provide this cover, the new scheme has increased the cost of a vehicle licence in WA.
Insurance Commission of Western Australia (ICWA) is the government insurer. In this role, it has to review and set WA CTP insurance premiums each year. It also keeps a close watch on how effectively it manages CTP claims.
If you are a vehicle owner in WA, the law requires you to have two licences – a driver licence and a vehicle licence. Note, a vehicle licence is called vehicle registration in other states and territories in Australia but may be called rego in WA.
The cost of CTP insurance WA is already included in your vehicle licence or registration fee. For more detail, you can find the MII policy printed on the back of your motor vehicle registration.
As the government provides CTP insurance, you cannot choose a CTP insurer in WA. However, you can contact the ICWA for CTP claims or with any questions about the CTP WA scheme.
