Vocational
Motorcycle Repair

Motorcycle mechanics are often small machine specialists that repair and maintain motorcycles, from the engine to the body. Motorcycle mechanics may also work on motor scooters, dirt bikes, and all-terrain vehicles.

Vocational and technical colleges offer programs in motorcycle repair, which can take from six months to two years to complete, and students can graduate with a certificate or an Associate’s degree. Such programs teach students about repairing break and suspension systems, engines, electrical and fuel systems.

After graduation, students may be employed at dealerships or specialty motorcycle shops, or may find work in motorcycle or parts assembly plants.

In addition to repairing motorcycle engines, motorcycle repair specialists may work on any other parts including brakes, transmissions, or make body repairs. Technicians use diagnostics to determine what the problem may be, and will usually follow a type of checklist as they inspect the vehicle. Typically repair specialists will work evenings and weekends to meet the needs of customers, and adhere to safety restrictions to avoid injury in the workplace.
