Motor Vehicle

Our Motor Vehicle courses provide a set of skills that will prove invaluable in building a successful career – from vehicle systems and how to diagnose faults to repair works, electronics and more.


Entry-level salaries in the sector are around £15,000 – with several hundred employed in and around West Cumbria, not only in local garages, but in the kind of organisations that run their own fleets of vehicles, like local government or distribution businesses.

Experienced Mechanics can look to supervisory roles or move into training apprentices and junior mechanics, or can even start their own businesses in vehicle recovery or repair.



If you join one of our Motor Vehicle courses, you’ll be taught by experienced lecturers who have worked in the industry. We offer a wide range of courses to suit all abilities.
