Education and training workshops at Caroline’s Cars
At Caroline’s Cars we firmly believe in offering people simple, open access to education about the various aspects of vehicle maintenance and repairs. This way, we hope to alleviate potential intimidation of consumers and fraudulent activity, both of which are sadly still present within the garage industry. I am currently running a beginners class as detailed below.
Most women have little or no knowledge about their cars and find a visit to the garage an intimidating experience. They also feel more likely to be ripped off than men. Sounds familiar? Like to know more? Then my class could be just the thing for you!
However, we have had a number of requests from men for classes too, as apparently many of them happily admit that they know nothing about their cars either! Therefore, we now offer mixed sex classes as well as female only ones, which allows husband/wife father/daughter combinations etc. When you enquire, please state whether you require ladies only or a mixed class.
Basic vehicle maintenance
The class, costs £49, lasts for four hours and is normally run on a Sunday. You will learn the basics including how to open your bonnet, check oil and water, tyre pressures, changing a wheel etc. You also get to help out with a service (change oil and filter, air filter etc) You will also learn what happens in the dreaded MOT test!
Classes are great fun and 'hands on' (gloves provided!) A participation certificate, refreshments and lunch are included.
Classes assume no prior knowledge or experience and are suitable for complete beginners.
For more details or to book a place please call or email me. We also offer gift vouchers, an ideal present for that ‘hard to buy for’ friend or relative.
What the Papers Say…
‘The course offered clear, friendly instruction coupled with a willingness to answer numerous questions. I also found the brochure we were given very helpful as it mirrored what actually happened on the course.’
Lena Rutter, Eastern Daily Press
‘Caroline explains even the smallest detail in a matter-of-fact, friendly manner and nothing is too much trouble.’
Annie Hirst, EDP Norfolk Magazine
‘I was amazed to find that I enjoyed an evening spent poking around in a car engine, with hands on experience of removing a wheel and far from being rendered nuts by wheel nuts, I was genuinely fascinated.’
Rowan Mantell, Norwich Evening News
