Compulsory third party vehicle insurance: a discussion paper for public comment

The Ministry is reviewing options for addressing the problem of uninsured motorists and wants to consult on the issues associated with a compulsory third party vehicle insurance regime. The first stage of a review recently undertaken on compulsory third party insurance involved an appraisal of compulsory insurance regimes in other jurisdictions. It was found that regimes varied across jurisdictions in terms of design, administration and level of compliance. The second stage included gaining insights into the New Zealand legal structure and vehicle fleet. The findings from this review have helped identify the benefits and costs of a compulsory third party insurance regime, and the options available for the structure and operation of a possible regime in New Zealand. This document sets out the issues and considerations to be addressed if a compulsory third party vehicle insurance regime is to be introduced in New Zealand. The document raises a range of topics and questions to prompt discussion and gather information on the various issues associated with the design, implementation, monitoring and enforcement of a compulsory third party vehicle insurance regime, and the compliance costs that are associated with this.
