Frequently asked questions

Question: We'd like an instructor to come into school to speak to our students about learning to drive and road safety. Can the AA driving school arrange this?

Answer: The AA driving school launched its instructor visits to schools programme in 2006. The content is currently aimed at 16 to 18 year olds, and due to high demand we need to limit the programme to this group. But we are monitoring interest, and may extend this facility to a younger age group if we receive enough requests. If you teach 16 to 18 year olds and are interested in receiving a visit from an AA instructor, please contact us.


Question: I'm a teacher who knows very little about cars. Do I need to have some prior knowledge in order to deliver these lessons to my pupils?

Answer: Not at all. We have ensured that all the information that you need, including links to websites, are included so that you can deliver the lesson with minimum effort. If you are still unsure about the basics you can also refer to the content on the main www.AA-Attitude.co.uk website and navigate to the 'Show me, tell me' game, which shows different parts of the car and what to check for.


Question: I'm unable to download the PDF files. What do I need to do?

Answer: To download PDF pages you'll need Adobe® Reader® on your computer. You can download a copy free on the Adobe® website.


Question: I'm going to use Lesson plan 5 – Up your street, and would like some additional information on traffic management. Can you recommend a website?
