Motorcycle Mechanics Competition

Motorcycle mechanics specialise in the repair, maintainance and testing of motorcycles. Motorcycle mechanics are valued for their craftsmanship and their ability to diagnose and repair vehicle faults. With a variety of skills needed from diagnostics to repair and roadworthy inspections, the motorcycle mechanic must demonstrate all-round capabilities.

IT ALL BEGINS AT A REGIONAL COMPETITION

The WorldSkills Australia Motorcycle Mechanics Competitions begin at a grass roots level in one of 34 Australian regions. The Motorcycle Mechanics Regional Competitions test the skills and knowledge of 4000+ apprentices, trainees and students, who have the opportunity to win gold, silver and bronze medals and gain the chance to go on to compete at a national level.

WorldSkills Australia competitions operate on a two-year cycle. The next Motorcycle Mechanics Regional Competition rounds are now running across the country. 2018 and 2020 are the next National Championship years.
