About the course

Do you know how to change a wheel on your car?

If not, then why not come and learn how to service your vehicle on our evening servicing course.

Over the 5 week programme you’ll learn the basics of motor vehicle technology by servicing your own car in the correct environment of our garages and workshops. Each 3 hour session will consist of an initial discussion and demonstration followed by working on that weeks activity under supervision. You’ll learn about your vehicle and what it’s condition is really like, before ending up with a serviced car for £250!

The course will begin with an initial general checkover, followed by a Health and Safety. You will learn what is wrong with your vehicle and what you need to service it.

You will be provided with a list of service components that can be purchased through Halfords at a discounted rate.
