Auto Locksmith Training

1, 2 or 3 day courses. Choose the level of auto training that’s best for you.

Considering an auto locksmith career? There’s lot’s to think about, especially when it comes to car key cutting and programming. But you’ve got to start somewhere and at Dr Lock we can train and show you how to launch your own auto locksmith business from as little as 6k, including the means for cutting, cloning and programming keys.

Our course is in a dedicated unit where you’ll learn everything with the latest equipment but the big difference with Dr Lock auto training is the focused personal attention you’ll receive. Your training is from 2 auto locksmiths, myself and Mo trading as North West Auto Locksmiths and we’ll guide you through all the techniques and equipment you need and on the 3 day course we’ll take you out to learn on real jobs too.

But giving you confidence in new skills that will get you earning straight away is only part of the deal. After the course you’ll still have unlimited access to my hotline for advice and support on any aspect of the daily job for as long as you need it.

And it’s not just me you’ll have to ask, you’ll have the support of a whole network as well. The exclusive  UK Locksmith Network you’ll join includes 45+ auto locksmiths. Knowledge and experience you can access just by dropping your question in our dedicated Whatsapp group.

Plus for those who join us for our 3 Day Auto Locksmith course you’ll receive the famed Dr Lock auto locksmith ‘bible’, full of examples and explanations for all scenarios, and the guarantee that you can return for more free Ride Along Days with Mo if you like.

So whether you’re interested in vehicle entry only, or want to learn everything you can about auto locksmithing, we don’t think there’s a better way to train to reach your goal.  Or one that includes the most long term support.
