All depends on where

you live, your age etc. Best to google it or look on national careers service website :unsure:

Usual advice

look up motorcycle workshops in your area, go round the front door, and ask. Bear in mind though, motor trade apprenticeships tend to be highly sought after and quite competitive.

Don't know your age / location / experience level, but your local college/s could be a good starting point; it'll give you a network of contacts, even if you have mechanical knowledge.

If you have mechanical knowledge (cars or bikes), record notes and take photos and build a logbook; when fault finding, note how you arrived at your diagnosis, eg "the bike wouldn't start, testing the battery proved it was OK, so I checked..." - it's a way of proving you can think logically.

One way of getting a foot in the door is to offer 4 or 6 weeks unpaid - it'll give an employer a chance to see you do the job, and give you a chance to see the job first hand.

Good luck!
