Milton Keynes, 15 December 2020 – SEAT Fleet has partnered with the AA Driving School in an agreement that will see two of its most popular vehicles become available to the renowned brand’s instructors.
The award-winning Arona compact SUV and Ibiza hatchback, ideal for new or experienced drivers, will become available to AA Driving School instructors.
As well as their impeccable safety credentials and dynamic driving characteristics, each model boasts outstanding total cost of ownership (TCO) figures, making them ideal options for any instructor.

The AA Driving School cited SEAT’s Fleet Manufacturers of the Year accolades and the outstanding quality of its line-up of vehicles as key to the deal. Its ‘easymove’ approach, making it much simpler for fleet drivers to select and specify their vehicle, was also a factor in the decision-making process.
SEAT UK Head of Fleet, Craig Cavanagh, commented: “The AA Driving School is responsible for training and developing the skills of thousands of new drivers every year. It is a vital job, and working closely with the AA, we can see why so many drivers put their trust in the brand.
“Learning to drive is such a formative part of your life; everybody remembers their first car or the car they learned in, and I’m delighted that due to this agreement, many more drivers will be able to say that the first car they drove was a SEAT. Our vehicles will stick in the memory; they are incredibly easy – not to mention fun – to drive, and present a compelling financial proposition, too.”
Sarah Rees, AA Driving School managing director, said: “We are pleased to be able to expand our fleet by partnering with SEAT to bring more choice and flexibility for our instructors.
“The new models are stylish and easy to drive and we think that they will be a popular choice with pupils too.”
With SEAT’s easymove approach, fleet customers need only choose the trim level, engine and colour on the online configurator – each has its own unique equipment to make it stand out and each comes with metallic paint as standard, making it simpler for fleet managers and user choosers to pick the perfect car for their needs.
