For the DIY customer, we provide instruction and assistance in automotive maintenance from repairs, to oil changes, to replacing engines. DIY'ers will pay small fees for safety classes, to reserve bays, to check-out tools, and to utilize machinery and diagnostic equipment.
In accordance with AR 215-1, all customers must attend a mandatory safety class to use this facility. Safety classes are given Tue thru Fri at 12 noon and Saturday at 9 a.m. which last about 20 minutes.

You can learn important automotive repair skills while saving money, and in turn, have the confidence to accurately complete the task.
