    As said Quinn Direct give DOC cover to any age even on their third party policies.

    Does it state that on your certificate? I'm with Prudential too, and I don't have DOC. My mum who's also insured with them does, however.

    Driving with Owners Consent..I.e you can drive other peoples cars if they have given you permission, and you have this on your own insurance policy.

    They told my Dad that I was insured on any car, with the owner's permission, when he was phoning them to pay them the extra £450 for me passing my driving test ^_^

    nope, covered earlier, sometimes fully comp doesnt have it or if it does tends to be over 25 only and sometimes tpft comes with it sometimes it is extra on both types

    As mentioned earlier..it used to be fairly common for Fully comprehensive insurance to have DOC as standard but the majority have removed it unless your a certain age ( 25 + normally) or sometimes made to pay extra.

    fortis, through swinton, gave me DOC at 24, with a TPFT policy. unfortunately they're absurdly restrictive on what they'll give reasonable quotes to younger drivers for, and anything over 1.6 is a no :(
