AA Ignition (3 free driving lessons) booking terms and conditions

Please read the following terms carefully – signing up to AA Ignition means that you agree to these.


You can sign-up to AA Ignition (3 free driving lessons) if you:

  • hold a learner driver licence that was issued within the last two months
  • are an AA Member or have a family member (parent/ grandparent/aunt/uncle/ brother/ sister) who is an AA Member, and
  • have a valid email address

Each individual AA Membership (including Associate Memberships) is eligible to access AA Ignition once every two years.

You can become an AA Member (including Associate and Youth Membership) and apply for this offer once per learner licence (providing that you meet the eligibility criteria).

There are no age restrictions, as long as you meet the licence and Membership criteria.


The free driving lessons will be conducted in the driving instructor’s dual controlled vehicle for your safety.

We provide driving lessons in either a manual or automatic in the main cities (Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin, Hamilton and Tauranga). Smaller towns may only provide one transmission type.

You must provide a minimum of 24 hours notice to change a lesson booking; you can do so by contacting your driving instructor directly.

You can bring a parent/friend to observe the lesson but this person MUST NOT contribute or participate in the lesson dialogue.

Your first free driving lesson will start and finish at the selected AA Centre, so that maximum time can be spent getting you started on your learn-to-drive journey. Arrangements for future lessons can be discussed directly with your instructor.

What you must bring to a lesson:

  • Your AA Ignition voucher (this will be emailed to you)
  • Learner driver licence
  • Progress booklet for lessons 2 and 3 (this will be provided at your first lesson)
  • Corrective eye wear (glasses or contact lenses), if they’re required as a condition of your learner licence
  • Appropriate driving shoes (no jandals)

The booking system handles allocation of lessons; once a booking has been placed, it will refer you to the next available instructor. If you know which instructor you would like lessons with or wish to change, then please contact the AA Driving School on 0800 223 199 and we will see what we can organise for you.


Vouchers are for the AA Ignition programme and the named recipient only – they cannot be transferred.

When you have completed your sign-up for AA Ignition online, a confirmation email will be sent to you with your first free lesson voucher attached. The vouchers for your second and third free lessons will be emailed to you after the completion of each preceding lesson.

Your first free driving lesson voucher is valid for 60 days from issue (the date you submitted your booking).

The second and third lesson vouchers become valid 30 days from date of the preceding lesson and are also valid for 60 days.

Vouchers cannot be redeemed after the expiry date.

Changes to the terms of this offer

The AA may change the scope of AA Ignition or these terms at any time. If you access this offer after the AA has changed the terms you will be bound by the new terms.
