Unfortunately the automotive repair program is closed for the summer. We will begin accepting applications again at the end of August.

NOTE: The Automotive Technology does not rebuild "live" engines and transmissions for customers

We are located at our new Career and Technical Campus, 7064 West Lancaster Road, Rathdrum, ID

Requests are limited to vehicles no older than 2002 model year due to our NATEF certification. Requests will be selected based on the most current and viable lab activity for the automotive students.

Lab fees range from $15.00 - $70.00, plus parts. We do not allow customers to supply their own parts.

Any profit generated goes into student scholarship fund or toward equipment purchases.

Understand that students are not experts and are in training… Most vehicle repairs require extended periods of time and are very hard to predict completion time. We are not fast, but thorough! If you are in a rush for your vehicle repair, we are NOT a good choice for you!
