Auto Mechanics Schools and Education

Increase your earning potential

What does it take to be a good, basic auto mechanic?

Practice. Experience. And- education.

Those who don't graduate from auto mechanic school may find themselves earning less than half of what their better-educated counterparts make.

According to the US Department of Labor, the median salary for auto mechanics is roughly $16 an hour. 

But at the lower end, it's not uncommon for an auto mechanic to make just over $8 an hour.

Cars are more sophisticated than they used to be, thanks to advances in computer science, GPS technology, road safety, and fuel efficiency.

Those who are well-versed in all of the above stand a much better chance of earning lucrative auto mechanic salaries starting from $16 an hour all the way up to almost $30 an hour in certain locations

Going back to auto mechanic school will also make it much easier for you to go solo and start up your own shop.
