The AA Driving School will now start using the all new Ford Focus for its learner drivers.
The AA Driving School will take on more than 1650 new Ford Focus models by the end of January 2012, joining Ford Fiestas, already a part of the fleet.
Since 1998, Ford has exclusively supplied the AA Driving School, and is half way through a three year deal which will see the Company provide more than 8000 cars.
Sarah Dopson, AA head of group fleet, said: "Not only is the new Ford Focus attractive to us in terms of its cost-effectiveness, but it is also ideal as a car for tuition purposes and learners are attracted to the AA Driving School as a result. The new Focus is a perfect stablemate for the Fiesta."
Ian Watson, Ford's direct sales manager, added: "The car in which you learn to drive leaves a lasting impression on you and Ford is of course delighted to have been associated with the AA Driving School on an exclusive basis for many years. We're sure that the new Ford Focus will prove every bit as popular with students as the Ford Fiesta and the previous Focus."
