After writing about how to select a Driving School in Kenya, some of you have asked for AA Driving school fees structure and other details.
Of course, AA is rated as one of the very best driving schools in Kenya (alongside Seniors Driving School and Glory Driving School) so we are not surprised that people want to know how much is the AAA driving school fees.
And so I popped into one of the popular driving School branches and picked the current AA driving school fees structure.
Here is the actual AA driving school fees structure including the number of lessons..
AA Driving School Fees Structure

AA driving school recommend this course for beginners (those who have no prior experience) and it’s offered in three categories as explained below..

You will also need to add shs.700 to cater for the driver’s manual, shs. 2200 NTSA fees (examination and logistics), and shs.580 as service charge.
This comes to a total of shs. 7980 (all inclusive)
- Light Vehicle (Saloon car) Driving Instruction course – NTSA Category B
Under this driving instruction course, learners go through 30 practical and theory lessons.
The AA driving school fees for this course is shs. 17,500.00 but like in the motor cycle driving course, you’ll also include shs. 700 ( driver’s manual), shs. 2200 NTSA fees, and shs.580 (service charge).

The curriculum here is for aspiring truck drivers in Kenya and its again 30 lessons long.
And while you only need to be at least 18 to enroll for Category A and Category B driving courses, you must be 22+ years to qualify for this course.

So, yes, that’s how the AA Driving school fees structure looks like for the beginner courses.
