Motor Vehicle, Transport and Logistics

The Motor Vehicle department at Newbury College works with the City & Guilds awarding body. The College offers a range of courses suitable for school leavers, students looking for progression opportunities and mature students who have a desire to work within the various disciplines of the motor trade.


Motor vehicle technicians maintain and repair cars, motorcycles, vans, lorries, and other vehicles such as buses and coaches. They diagnose problems, advise the owner about the options and then carry out the required work on a vehicle’s engine, brakes, cooling system, steering, gearing, transmission and suspension.

Today’s vehicles are very sophisticated and include many computerised and electronic systems. A motor vehicle technician checks vehicles, and repairs or replaces any faulty parts or equipment. They often specialise in repairing certain types, for example light or heavy vehicles, or motorbikes. If they work in a garage, many technicians will carry out MOTs.

Skilled, well-trained technicians are much in demand. There are opportunities all over the country in garages, workshops and dealerships, with large companies that operate their own fleets, with bus and coach companies, and with organisations such as the RAC and AA.
