Just so everyone understands what I mean by 'CTP', it covers anybody injured or worse, other than the driver/rider at fault.
It is separate from road tax/rego/vehicle licensing fees(whichever term applies) but can't have rego without the Compulsory T.P., it's also separate from comprehensive or Third Party Property, which is not compulsory.

Up until ~late eighties, in our state, the 'Transport Dept' did driver licensing, and the 'Main Roads Dept' did rego then it combined.
 Ok thanks Ian, I'll wait and see what other places do, maybe get a movement happening?? Maybe get B-Bill crankin' *smile*

cheers

As far as the loss of entitlement is concerned, I do the following. Every year, I have to have a PCV entitlement renewed because of my age (groan). I have to send in my old licence, so, for fear of losing my motorcycle entitlement, I send a stamped addressed envelope & request return of my old licence. This then comes back with a hole punched in it to render it invalid, but at least you have the proof that you want, if further issues develop. I heard of a motorcycle policeman who had the same trouble & the DVLA were adamant that he had never passed a motorcycle test! Mistakes, by DVLA are numerous. Many mistakes are made when a change of ownership is made to vehicle records. In the end, if they are minor, I let them go as if returned for correction, they often come back with more mistakes than ever!

I can imagine how you feel about that, maybe I shouldn't have mentioned G.Fawkes??
