Is becoming a motorcycle mechanic a good career choice? I mean, will I be able to find a job?
I am thinking about a career change
I believe there are different companies needs talent on motorcycle mechanics, e.g. Garage, Motor Cycle Manufacturer, etc. There many of these companies. You can keep an eye on it.
On the other hand I am not sure whether you have completed the relevant qualification yet. If not, would you consider to take the relevant courses in the college? You can find out the entry criteria. The relevant knowledge and qualification can help you to look for the job and advance your career path.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
As far as pay is concerned, I would definitely take your time looking for the right place to work. Not sure about motorcycle shops specifically, but I know that a lot of mechanics are paid per billable hour as opposed to an hourly rate. That kind of compensation works in your favor if the shop is busy but it can be a problem when you have slow days. It's not unheard of for mechanics to spend 8 hours a day in a shop and get paid for less than 8 hours because there's not a lot of work to do.
It can be rewarding, don't get me wrong, there's just some challenges to keep in mind.
