What opportunities will this course give me?

This FREE basic motor vehicle checks workshop will help you learn more about looking after your existing car, as well as what to look out for when buying a used vehicle.

Please take a look at our other free wellbeing courses running later in the year which form part of our Community Learning Programme.

Eastleigh College offer a variety of leisure courses to suit all interests, including our more comprehensive Car Maintenance for Beginners course - please browse the website for further details.

What will I be learning?

In this workshop, we will be focusing on:

• Checks to carry out before starting a long journey
• Basic winter checks on your vehicle
• Pre-MOT checks you can carry out
• What to look out for when buying a used car online and in person

You will primarily learn through discussions, activities, group work, pair work, observation and practice.

Why is this course for me?

Whilst you will not gain a professional qualification on this course, this workshop is a great way to gain confidence in looking after your motor vehicle, how to carry out some pre-MOT checks yourself, and common issues when buying a second hand vehicle.

How will my learning be enhanced?

On this workshop, you will be taught by a qualified motor vehicle technician who has extensive experience of teaching to both adults and young people.

Your tutor will be both friendly and accommodating, ensuring your experience on the workshop is stimulating and rewarding.
