Luke joined Steertrak in 2013 as an Apprentice wheel alignment technician. During this time he attended college one day a week to gain an NVQ in automotive engineering and he was also released one day a week to a Steertrak customer’s to learn more general vehicle maintenance. For the remaining three days a week he worked along-side one Steertrak’s most experienced engineers where he learnt all aspects of commercial vehicle wheel alignment.
After 18 months of training Luke finished his apprenticeship with Steertrak and also graduated from college with a distinction.
“I finally completed all my training in September 2014 and it’s really cool that I have my own Steertrak van, wheel alignment equipment and tools. I am starting to build up my own customer base and I feel confident that I can walk into any customer site and competently work on a whole range of commercial vehicles”
“I have now got a real skill for life and I’d encourage any person of my age to consider a mechanical apprenticeship. The money pretty good and the work is interesting”
