Automotive Maintenance and Repair (4101)

Last Updated: 31 Aug 2016
The NVQs allow you to prove that you have the skills to maintain and repair vehicles - from mechanical and electrical work, re-sprays, bodywork and tyre fitting, to getting stranded motorists back on the road again.

These practical qualifications demonstrate your skills on the job, in your own workplace, showing that you meet national standards for automotive workers. They can take you from your first workshop repair job to a role where you supervise a team of people.

You could specialise in mechanical and electrical work, re-sprays and bodywork, tyre-fitting, or getting stranded motorists back on the road again.

These automotive qualifications give you lots of options - there are basic certificates and diplomas to get you started, and higher levels to help you move into a role where you supervise a team of people.
For the NVQs, you need a current job or work placement where you do repair work, body work, tyre-fitting or roadside recovery. If you don't have a suitable job or work placement, you could do the certificate or diploma version of the 4101 qualification. You might be a young learner (under 16) or an adult.

The VRQs are for anyone interested in starting or developing a career in the motor industry. You don't need any previous experience or a current work placement. You might be a young learner (under 16) or an adult.
