Hi there,

Hoping I can offer some advice here.

It normally takes 2-3 years to complete the qualifications you need to become a qualified mechanic. There are two routes that you can train. Firstly you can go to college and study:

- Level 2 Diploma in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair
OR
- Level 3 Diploma in Vehicle Technology

Which level you start on will depend on the GCSE qualifications you have.

You can also train to become a mechanic through an apprenticeships. You can complete an intermediate (level 2) or advanced apprenticeship (level 3) as a motor vehicle service and maintenance technician. Again you will need some GCSEs and how many you have and at what grades will determine the level you start on.

Many young people chose the apprenticeship route as it helps you to gain hands on work experience at the same time and you receive a training wage. You can start searching for local apprenticeship vacancies here - https://www.gov.uk/apply-apprenticeship

If you need further support or have any other questions I am more than happy to help.

Thanks - Sophie.
