Over 1,650 Ford Focus Units Will Join AA Driving School

There is no better way to keep get a new fan for the cars that an car company makes than to help the a young driver-to-be on the way to getting his license. That’s what Ford must have been thinking when they announce that the all-new Ford Focus is set to attract new admirers among learner drivers as it joins the fleet of the AA Driving School.

According to an official statement, more than 1,650 new Ford Focus models are to be taken into the school’s 2,200-strong fleet by the end of January 2012. This is one of the biggest single orders ever seen by Ford in a long time. The best seller will join the Ford Fiesta to provide students using the UK’s leading driving school

Ford has supplied the AA Driving School on an exclusive basis since 1998, the year the original Focus was launched, and is mid-way through a three-year deal which will see it supply in excess of 8,000 cars.

“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,” said Sarah Dopson, AA head of group fleet.

“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,” said Ian Watson, Ford’s direct sales manager.
