i did exactly the same as you followed mates into a business course.. got fed up and bored so left and went to work.. never worked with bikes!! :upset:

im also gonna look into one of those home courses you can do... but i suppouse it dont beat having a tutor mentoring you!!

have u tried your local bike shops.. maybe try get in on a part time basis.. do some of the easier tasks and work your way up ???

I'm at college full-time doing City & Guilds Motorcycle Service and Repair.

The motorcycle trade is pretty much closed shop. With or without a qualification, you're going to struggle unless you have paid work experience in the motor trade. If you have none, while you're at college, try getting a part-time job at Halfords, preferably the parts counter, or your local motor factors or even at Hein Gericke, just for something to put on your CV.

As well as Honda and Suzuki, have you looked at the BMW scheme? I have a couple of possible jobs lined up for when I finish in June but I'll be starting from the ground up, preparing bikes for sale, etc. but it's getting a foot in the door so you can prove yourself. A lot of it is who, rather than what you know.

Good luck and if there's anything you want to know about the course, give me a shout.
