The new state-of-the-art motor vehicle workshop is installed with industry standard equipment including a four-poster ramp and diagnostic testing equipment. This gives students practical, real-life work experience whilst completing their studies.

These courses are designed to give you an awareness of vehicle operating systems. You will develop an understanding of the maintenance procedures through practical tasks using modern technologies and tools.

A live MOT test bay provides a realistic working environment, up to date PC access and modern resources that are relevant to the industry. Training is delivered via our trainers who are all current live MOT testers in industry.


Qualifications can lead to roles in the motor vehicle industry such as being a mechanic, vehicle maintenance, servicing and vehicle recovery.
