Top of the world: Top Technician/Top Garage 2018

Published:  26 October, 2017


Top Technician is coming back for 2018, and is bringing a new competition with it; Top Garage. This all-new related contest will enable whole businesses to compete to find out who is the ‘Top.’

Top Technician 2018 will bring forth the competition that the industry has come to expect, while Top Garage 2018 is to provide a whole new route to recognising excellence

Thousands of technicians from independent, franchised and fast-fit workshops have entered Top Technician since it was founded in 2002, and the benefits of getting involved with Top Technician continues to grow.

To be eligible for Top Technician, entrants must be over 18, and have been working as a vehicle technician in a garage, dealership or workshop in the UK and Ireland for the last three years.

Entrants have the chance to gain technical knowledge and make valuable contacts through Top Technician. Those who make it through to the finals and ultimately lift the trophy will also find a real boost to their careers and businesses which money can’t buy.

This year, whole businesses gain the opportunity to take part via the brand new Top Garage competition. Top Garage enables us to shine a light on the best businesses operating in the sector.
