    Hi guys, never post here, but whilst doing a TON of searches on the internet for renewal this week (I'm 22 in 3 weeks) I found a fair few posts on here with people asking where to get DOC (Driving Other Cars) cover whilst being under 25 (old posts mind, but DOC cover is always nice).

    Found a ton of old posts saying Adrian Flux, Bell, Admiral, Quinn (before they were bought out) and others, but when I called them the closest I could find was Adrian Flux, but apparently you only have a chance with them if you're over 23 with most of their insurers.

    After about 7 or 8 phone calls I eventually found one! The Co-op!

    They told me that they give DOC cover as standard to their policy holders regardless of age, so there you go, they do still exist for us young guns, just a bit harder to find Hope someone is helped out.

    That's good to know. I have fully comp insurance with Admiral but can't drive other cars as I'm under 25. Will have to look at co-op next year.

    Well done + rep from me since, unlike so many folk on here, you could actually be bothered to pick up the phone!

    When I was looking for insurance which allowed me to drive other cars I phoned at least 20 - 25 companies and the CO-OP were the only ones who said I could. A few of them said I have to be over 25 to drive other cars but doesn't matter about age for CO-OP. Jake

    I don't think you will have much (any) luck finding another insurer offering the same extension for under 25s. As I said above I phoned just about every insurer there was and the co-op was the only one which offered it for our age. But I will be pleased if someone does know of any others!
