The Automobile Association was created by people like you – keen drivers who just wanted fair treatment.
Not much has changed on that front since June 1905, when four driving enthusiasts banded together in London to form the AA. From day one our goal has been exactly the same: to protect you, the motorist, and put your interests first.
With over 15 million members from the original 90, it's fair to say we've grown a bit; in fact, we're now the UK's largest motoring organisation, still going strong over a century later. From setting up our first motorbike patrols to piloting 'connected cars', we've got a unique history of embracing new technology and innovations to better serve you.
The Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA) is a trade qualification for all facets of automotive repair in the United Kingdom. It is a voluntary scheme similar to that for electricians run by the NICEIC.
Britannia Rescue is one of the foremost names in breakdown coverage in the UK
Green Flag is different from the AA and the RAC.

We manage each and every breakdown from operational centres, sending help wherever it’s needed across the UK.
