Apart from just demonstrating and talking about the systems We offer a hands on approach to teaching you.
What subjects do we cover?
We are a big believer that there’s nothing better then getting your hands dirty, part of the course is changing a wheel bearing so be prepared to get dirty.
We cover the following key maintenance areas:
- Front Axle/ suspension
- Braking System
- Prop shafts
- Transmission / engine
- Wheel bearings
- Fuel systems
- Cooling Systems
In this course we anticipate you bringing your own vehicles on to one of our lifts to talk about specific areas that may be of concern on longer more challenging journeys.
