FREE Automotive Classes

In addition to the services provided by ASE technicians, Gordon Car Care also offers an Auto Skills area with instructors on hand to guide you as you work on your own vehicle.

Patrons must attend a Shop Certification Class before using the Auto Skills area. Classes are offered during business hours, Wednesday through Sunday. You'll watch a 15-minute video and then you'll receive a shop safety card. Present this card each time you want to rent a bay.

Clean-Up starts one hour prior to closing.
