AA breakdown mechanics

The UK’s roadside heroes

Find out who they are and what they do

The extra mile is often the most memorable. You don’t forget those who saved the day and got you back on the road. That’s why we’re proud to have more highly skilled mobile mechanics (often known as patrols) than any other breakdown company. They’re all absolutely lovely and they’ll never leave you stranded.

On average, they have over 12 years of experience and more than 14,000 breakdowns under their belt. Watch our video to hear some of their memorable stories from the road.


At the fingertips of every great mobile mechanic is cutting edge technology – containing all of the knowledge we have built up about fixing cars over the past 110 years. This means we can fix 8 out of 10 cars at the roadside and usually get you going again in around 30 minutes.

And unlike some breakdown cover providers, we put all our staff through intensive training and run a private fleet of vehicles – so you can be sure you’ll be getting the best service every time you see one of our iconic yellow vans.
