Students studying on the Motor Vehicle courses at Harrogate College will return after half term to find a brand new car in the workshop, donated by local business Select Cars in Hampsthwaite, Harrogate.
Select Cars, a used sports and prestige car dealer based in the heart of Harrogate, kindly donated a Peugeot 206 1.4 which, although not brand new, only has 75k miles on the clock and will provide students with the opportunity to learn and hone their skills on a different vehicle, skills that businesses such as Select Cars are most interested in.
“We’re very grateful to Select Cars for donating this car to Harrogate College as we’re always looking for new vehicles for our students to practice on. It’s fantastic to see a local business supporting the students and training that we provide.”- Howard Wallace- Motor Vehicle Tutor
The Motor Vehicle tutors will use the car to put faults on, allowing the students to run diagnostics to assess the issue and fix it, providing fundamental skills for a lifelong career in the industry.
If you’re thinking of scrapping a car, then don’t! With prices at the scrap yard currently so low, please donate your car to our Motor Vehicle workshops instead where it will be put to good use! Please call 01423 879466.
