Vehicle restoration

“Maintain, repair and restore historic classic light vehicles and motorcycles”

Vehicle restoration takes an old and neglected—but usually sought after—vehicle, such as a classic car or motorbike, and restores it to its former glory. From sourcing original parts to painting the vehicle the colour it wore when it rolled off the manufacturing line, vehicle restoration is highly specialised and increasingly in demand. As an intermediate apprentice at a garage or dealership, you’ll train as a vehicle restoration technician and learn how to maintain, repair and restore historic classic light vehicles and motorcycles. You’ll train in traditional and modern process skills covering mechanical, electrical, body, paint and trim. The advanced apprenticeship takes this training one step further, allowing you to specialise in a specific area of maintenance, repair and restoration.
