Your CTP premium is made up of the CTP Insurer Premium for the Policy of Insurance, the CTP Scheme Services fee that funds government services to support the Scheme, Stamp Duty and GST.

GST is charged at a rate of 10% on the CTP Insurer Premium component only.

The Stamp Duty included in the CTP Scheme Services fee is charged on the CTP Premium as required under the Stamp Duties Act 1923. The amount is calculated as 11% on the CTP Insurer Premium, GST on the CTP Insurer Premium, and the CTP Scheme Services fee.

The CTP Scheme Services fee, as shown on the registration renewal form, consists of an Administration Fee and Stamp Duty paid on the other components of the CTP Insurer Premium.

The Administration Fee is determined by the Regulator when premium ranges are set for each financial year, and it differs across premium classes.

  • Ambulance services – provided by SA Ambulance as a result of motor vehicle trauma.
  • Blood sample testing – provided by Forensic Science SA on behalf of the
    Attorney-General’s Department for blood and alcohol testing as a result of motor vehicle trauma.
