Mobile Technician

“If you love cars and enjoy fixing things, this could be a great career for you.”

Mobile Technician

Mobile 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.

The most common way to become a mobile technician is through an apprenticeship in automotive. 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 mobile technician you will need to have strong practical skills as well as flexibility to travel to and from customers. 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.
