Vehicle garaging location is one of four factors that may apply in setting CTP premiums. A vehicle garaging address falls into one of two insurance rating districts. District 1 represents higher populated areas, roughly corresponding to metropolitan Adelaide, and district 2 represents the rest of the state.
2020 insurance rating district boundary review
The districts are divided by a boundary via postcode and, in some areas, localities within postcodes. The boundary was established in 2002 and reviewed in 2020. As a result of the CTP insurance rating district boundary review, a new boundary was determined. This has caused a number of postcodes and suburbs to transfer district. The changes are effective for CTP policies due from 1 July 2020. The postcodes and suburbs involved in the redistribution are outlined in the table below.
Transferred postcodes and suburbs effective 1 July 2020
5153, 5154, 5157, 5201, 5233, 5241, 5243, 5244, 5252

Different premiums for districts
Each district has its own set of premium rates for each premium class. The difference in premiums between districts 1 and 2 reflects the difference in number of CTP claims per 1,000 registered vehicles and the average cost of CTP claims arising from at-fault vehicles, based on garaging address.
If you live on or near a postcode boundary the premium for your vehicle may be different to the premium for other vehicles registered to nearby addresses as they may be in a different insurance rating district.
