Automobile Mechanic Advice

Q: What is it like working as an Automobile Mechanic?

Automobile Mechanic in Leeds:
"If I Knew The Pay Was So Low I Would Have Chosen Something Else."
Just because you have a certificate does not make you a fully qualified pro you need to learn the old way with older pros.

Automobile Mechanic in Blackburn:
"Future car mechanics"
Get as many qualifications and experience as you can. I have found a wide knowledge across all diesel and petrol vehicles makes the job so much easier and makes me alot more efficient in doing the job. Also target your weaknesses for example since leaving college ten years ago my electrical knowledge has become rusty this can be frustrating at times, I am now seeking a seperate auto electricians course I can do in my spare time. An NVQ in auto electrical diagnosis and repair has the potential to aid me in future jobs or if I decide to go self employed. Also get your MOT testers card as soon as possible. Most employers pay for this and its going to be another weapon in your arsenal for requesting pay rises or applying for jobs in the future as most well paid mechanics are MOT testers. Finally do as much research via youtube, google etc on different vehicle set ups, engine, drive train, why manufacturers choose to do some things in a different way to others.Basics first,fuses,tyres etc
