One of the things we learned when we started our mechanic repair shop is how much customer appreciated learning about their vehicles. We initially started our car care education in conjunction with our JumpStart Fund. After a time though we realized many people have no one to teach them about their vehicle and there is so much to learn! So, we decided to offer our Car Care workshops to anyone who wanted to learn about owning and operating a vehicle. We offer several different learning opportunities. You can learn more about the various opportunities below and register on these links as well. The workshops are open to the public and a donation to our JumpStart Fund is always gratefully accepted.

This workshop will help you make sense of insurance and ensure you have the proper information if you ever have to make a claim. How much should insurance cost? What coverage do I need?
