About MAC

The Motor Accident Commission (MAC) is South Australia’s Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer and provides approximately $360 million each year in compensation to road crash victims.

MAC also manages the State Government’s road safety communications program and provides funding for projects that aim to reduce the number and impact of road injuries and deaths.

In South Australia, CTP insurance is built in to the registration process – when you register your vehicle you also pay a CTP insurance premium that is designed to provide cover for people injured in road crashes.

The CTP Fund provides compensation for the victims of road crashes where the owner or driver of a registered motor vehicle or a passenger is at fault.

Our Mission

To provide a viable system of Compulsory Third Party (CTP) injury insurance for South Australians and contribute to road trauma reduction.

Our Vision

We will ensure the long term viability of the CTP Scheme by working with partners and stakeholders for the benefit of South Australian road users.
