Basic Car Maintenance with Hands-on

Course Objective

If you’re a driver who’s trying to save money, good luck. Each time something goes wrong with your car, you drive to the workshop with that sinking feeling that the mechanic is once again going to fleece you of hundreds or thousands of dollars. And there’s nothing you can do because you have no idea what’s going on.  Take a course in car maintenance and at the very least, you’ll be able to save a bit of money on routine oil changes and the like.

This Basic Car Maintenance Course course is conducted at real life Ubi car workshop, with actual hands-on experience on an actual car.
