For many, wanting to become a mechanic is a childhood dream. You may have nostalgic memories of watching a family member work on cars and have always dreamed of getting under the bonnet yourself. Some may have developed a love for cars in teenage years, when nearing the age to be able to drive. Others may just be mechanically inclined and always been hands-on and curious about how engines work.

If you see yourself in any or all of these examples, you’re probably meant for a career in the automotive repair industry. Entering a career as a mechanic means a guaranteed future of steady work. Slumps in the economy can affect consumers buying new cars, but vehicles will always require maintenance and repair.

While a love for cars and hands-on work are great reasons to become a mechanic, there is also the fact that you will be entering an industry employing over 570,000 people and promising a salary upwards of £30,000 per year, once fully qualified.
