Apprentice car technicians are vital for the motor industry, says West Lynn based business
Apprentice car technicians are vital for the future of the motor industry, according to Lynn-based D&O Motor Services Ltd, of West Lynn.
The business, located at East Coast Business Park, flagged up their importance during National Apprenticeship Week, last week.
Adam Overland established the company two years ago with business partner Michael Docherty, with whom he had worked previously.
Michael told the Lynn News: "Both myself and Adam were apprentices and we both realise the value of following that route into a career. In my opinion, hands-on experience is the best way of learning a trade rather than just studying.
"We will be looking to take on another apprentice at the business in the future."
D&O Motor Services, is a business which is now five-strong and aims to hire more staff to expand further.
Michael and Adam both said car technician apprenticeships were hugely important to the motors industry, which continually sees advances in technology.
There has also been a shift towards diagnostics, and there are a number of diagnostic machines on the premises. The business offers both car servicing and MOT appointments, which includes a year-long, 12,000-mile warranty. Brake and other safety checks are free.
Together Adam and Michael bring three decades of combined experience to the business, they can handle all models and make of motor and aim to provide the feel of a dealership at an affordable price.
