There isn’t one standard route to becoming a mechanic, so you can choose the path that best suits you and your needs. Starting from scratch, it usually takes between 2 and 5 years to become fully qualified, depending on which route you take into the industry.
A garage is a one-stop shop for all automotive repairs. Mechanics have to be very knowledgeable about the workings of different makes and models of cars and an in depth understanding of how they work. Garages are the go-to place if you have any questions about your car’s performance; if you need advice about motoring matters; if you know that there is something wrong with your car and you need it fixed or if your vehicle is due a service or MOT.
You could be the most skilled mechanic in the world, but you wouldn’t be able to set up a thriving garage or workshop without the necessary tools and equipment. Choosing the correct equipment when setting up your own garage business is crucial.
