Car Maintenance School Incursions
Picture your senior students jumping into the driver’s seat, keys in hand, P-plates on and the open road ahead.
It’s both exciting and liberating for them, but do our young Australians know anything about how their car works?
Galmatic has 12 years’ experience teaching car maintenance school incursions. We have taught over 50,000 students and have identified that teenagers are not being shown basic car know-how by their parents or driving instructors.
Armed with some easy and basic life skills, we can help them on their journey to becoming safer drivers, informed and empowered road users and can help reach the nation’s goal of a zero-road toll.
“The girls who attended the course today with Mel, really enjoyed it. She was great! She provided exactly the sort of information they needed to look after their cars without it being overwhelming”

Hands-on and Interactive Workshops
Our School Incursions are designed for students to be immersed in practical skills from the get go.
-Get in and get your hands greasy stuff-
No hard jargon or boring power points with black and white diagrams.
We dive in and get them under the bonnet checking the oil and then on the ground, changing a tyre in an intensive, interactive hands-on workshop.
“A great experience and learning for my kids….. here’s hoping it keeps them safer. Your staff are excellent… Helen & Eleni are great presenters who are able to keep the room interested and wanting to learn.
They really seem like they love their job.”
What They Learn
We focus on teaching students to be comfortable with exploring and questioning.
We remove the fear of “Can I touch that?”and create a safe and fun environment where no question is too silly to ask.
Most importantly we provide them with a check list of skills they can use in their day to day driving.
The workshop is designed around what we call ‘The 10-minute servo check’.
Which is a monthly car check to ensure their car is running at its best, doesn’t break down and gets them driving safely.
“I just wanted to thank you very much for the wonderful workshops
that your company provided yesterday.
Karina was delightful and enthusiastic.
She was punctual, prepared and knowledgeable.”
Under the Bonnet
- What, when and how to check the engine to keep it running smoothly and safely
- What they can and can’t touch in the engine bay
- Students check the oil and coolant, fluids, battery and hoses
- How to care for tyres & check the pressure
- Students change a tyre
“Galmatic was an extremely relevant workshop it gave students relevance and builds on confidence in an area that they would normally not know anything. Great role models.”
Every student receives the Glovebox Guide Playbook.
The Playbook is a recap of the workshop. It includes a step by step guide on how to change a tyre and the ‘The 10-minute servo check’ how-to checklist.
Students will be provided with a link to download the workshop playbook onto their phones. We also have a parents information page.
We can deliver a workshop to suit the number of students and the time you have available. We have standard workshop formats or we can organise a school incursion workshop to suit your exact needs.
