    So, my car is a write off after an accident involving no other cars, and I'm being paid out by my insurer, Co-Op.

    Does anyone know if this will completely void all of my NCD, which was (idiotically) unprotected, or just reduce it down?

    I cannot seem to find anything that answers the question in the policy documents or the FAQ's.

    Something was mentioned on the phone the other day about it but I can't actually remember what they said. Will ring them again tomorrow but if anyone has any clue now it'd be appreciated!

    There’s a table on Page 31 of this which covers it:

    It all depends on what level of NCD you currently have and if this is your first claim in the current year.

    You couldn't make it up.

    I'm well aware it'll be affected, just wasn't entirely sure to what extent.

    Assuming you’ve been with the Co Op for 2 years already then yeah, I think so.

    Don’t forget though while NCD is helpful, if they now decide the risk you present has gone up massively as a result of this accident, you’ll presumably still see a big rise in the premium at renewal whatever discount they apply.

    Thanks for that. Very helpful.
