(4) The public makes contact with the CTP Regulator on a range of CTP insurance matters, with a number of complaints / queries raising the cost of CTP insurance.

Over the period 2015-16 to 2017-18 (to date), 20.0% of the complaints / queries received by the CTP Regulator (6 out of 30 complaints / queries) raised concerns with the cost of CTP insurance.

Providing motorists with the option of paying a vehicle registration and CTP insurance for 3, 6 or 12 months;
