If you love cars and enjoy fixing things, this could be a great career for you.
Motor vehicle technicians repair and service cars, vans, motorbikes, lorries and coaches. They work on all vehicle mechanics and electrics, from engines and exhaust systems to air-conditioning and security.
What you need
The most common way to become a motor vehicle technician is through an apprenticeship in vehicle mechanics. To get onto a scheme, you may need GCSEs in maths, English and science. Another way is to take an automotive course at college to learn some of the skills needed for the job.
To become a motor vehicle technician you will need to have strong practical skills. You’ll need to be good at problem-solving and finding faults. And you’ll also need to be a good with people and have great customer service skills.
Most Technician Jobs require the candidate to work around 40 hours per week over a 7 day period as there is always something to be done, especially in this industry where people and businesses are heavily reliant on their own modes of transport.
A trainee or technician apprenticeship salary can range between £7,000 - £11,000 depending on age and level of experience. A qualified technician can expect between £13,000 and £20,000 per year, and a master technician can expect £20,000+ depending on area of expertise and the size of the company.
