Rev Up Your Life with a Career in Motorcycle Repair

Get into the fast lane and consider a career in motorcycle repair. To get there you’ll first need specialized training. As a motorcycle repair technician, you may find yourself repairing and overhauling motorcycles, mopeds or all-terrain vehicles. You will need to have a working knowledge of transmission and ignition systems, and minor body repairs.

Training Programs for Motorcycle Repair Technicians

Most employers prefer to higher repair technicians who have degrees from formal training programs. Due to the increasingly technical nature of small engine mechanics, most learn skills on the job while working in related occupations. Anywhere from 3 to 5 years of on-the-job training may be necessary before you become knowledgeable in the many aspects of motorcycle repair. Some employers send mechanics and trainees to equipment manufacturer-sponsored training. This training can last up to two weeks, and can provide important information on repair techniques and trends in the industry. Most employers prefer to hire high school graduates for trainee mechanic positions, but will accept applicants with less education if they possess adequate reading, writing, and arithmetic skills.

A Fast-Paced Future

The U.S Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) reports that employment opportunities for small engine mechanics is expected to grow as fast as most other industries by 2014. Median hourly earnings of motorcycle mechanics were $13.70 in May 2004. BLS reports average hourly income between $10.58 and $17.53, with the highest 10 percent of mechanics earning more than $21.95.
