More Information

Uxbridge College is pioneering the latest in high tech learning with its new training technologies for electric and hybrid car maintenance and repairs. The college recently took delivery of a Mini Electric, which is being used hand in hand with its new state-of-the-art electric car simulator, the Car Train. Its EV (Electric Vehicle) courses will support the major shift towards the use of electric and hybrid vehicles, as the UK moves to end its contribution to global warming. Candidates will be given a maximum of 3 opportunities to resit the online exam. Failure to pass/show up for these 3 resit dates will result in the candidate failing the entire course. The resit fee is £50 and the candidate will need to wait until the next batch of exams are taking place to resit.

In order to achieve the qualification, candidates must pass all elements of the course within the current academic year– there will be no opportunity for any resits/resubmissions later. However, serious personal issues that arise that may adversely affect attendance and consequently completion of the course - these will be considered on a case by case basis. The on-line exam will be in the week after the end date of the course.

I joined Uxbridge College, because my school recommended it to me and it is close to where I live. I like my motor vehicle course, I think the facilities and equipment for this course are very good and easily accessible to me. I wish to progress to an apprenticeship and I think the staff at the College are very helpful, supportive and encouraging. I would definitely recommend Uxbridge College to others.

The facilities and workshop for motor vehicle training at Uxbridge College help me achieve the best I can from my course. The teachers are very helpful and encouraging. I’ve gained experience working on a variety of cars, widening my learning and understanding. I feel very safe coming to the College even with everything going on, and even during lockdown, zoom sessions and google classroom kept me up to date with my learning. The best thing about Uxbridge College is the environment and the opportunities offered to students.
