Car Maintenance - The Basics

Get to grips with basic maintenance of your vehicle. Find out what to look for in the event of a breakdown and more.


Learn what makes your car go and how to undertake basic maintenance of your vehicle, including servicing, checking fuses and changing a tyre.

Please note that part of this workshop is held outdoors so please dress according to the weather – sun hats in summer and warm clothes in winter. (If the weather is very bad in the afternoon and the practical part can't happen, this will be rescheduled).

By the end of the one-day workshop, you'll be able to:
• Describe the routine service tasks required to maintain a vehicle
• Undertake minor maintenance on your vehicle
• Describe safety considerations when working with vehicles
• Undertake minor “trouble shooting” when an issue arises 

Note:  Courses need a minimum number to go ahead so if we don't have enough enrolments a few days before the start date, we have to cancel. We'll let you know by email so please check yours regularly. If you need to cancel your registration, here are our terms and conditions: "What You Need to Know".
