AA Ignition

The AA has made the decision to suspend the Ignition programme.

All students currently enrolled in the programme will still be able to complete all 3 lessons, but we will not be taking additional new enrollments.

Recent events have led to change in many areas of our everyday lives and it is certainly no different at the Automobile Association. Due to the effects of Covid19 we are suspending the AA Ignition programme so we can review its effectiveness and the overall budget available for its resumption. Our intention at this time is to still offer a free driving lesson programme for learner drivers who are AA Members, and over the months ahead we will be looking at its likely shape.

We look forward to being part of your Learning to Drive Journey, as the AA Driving School continues to offer many other services. We have a network of AA Driving Instructors and tutors that can offer paid Driving Lessons, Simulated Driving Tests and Defensive Driving Courses.

We understand that this will be a disappointment for some Members, but the Ignition programme is only one of the in-car training options we offer and you can still book a lesson either directly with an AA Driving School Instructor, via the AA Website or by calling 0800 223 748.

Our intention is to relaunch the AA Ignition programme at a future date, likely in a different form.

Please register your interest below, and we will keep you informed of our progress. We will also notify you when the AA Ignition programme relaunches. You may also get the opportunity to help define the new shape of the AA Ignition programme by responding to a survey.
