Motor Vehicle

By studying Motor Vehicle at Dearne Valley College, you will have a rare opportunity to study whilst working on both standard and hybrid vehicles in purpose-built facilities.

Equipment

We house modern and electric and hybrid vehicles, so what you learn is will get you ahead of the curve and mean that your skills are in demand. You’ll not only have a great selection of cars to work on, but tools to work with; you will have access to welding machines, angle grinders and anything you could possibly need when it comes to vehicle maintenance and repair.

Skills students will learn

By working on our electric and hybrid vehicles, you’ll have in-demand skills needed for the present and future of the ever-evolving motor industry.

You’ll be able to specialise your skills, choosing to develop them in either maintenance or accident and repair. You can also choose which areas of maintenance to work on, such as motorcycle, light vehicle, or transport. These specialist skills will set you up for success in a hands-on career that you enjoy.

Health and Safety

The Motor Vehicle workshop is a safe and clean environment, where every student and member of staff undertakes continuous health and safety training. This includes a health and safety induction and training before using specialised equipment and tools. Students are also expected to wear personal protective equipment (PPE), which includes coveralls and safety boots.
