Daniel has had an interest in the automotive field from a young age and spends every spare minute modifying his cars.

He has shown exceptional understanding during the four years of his Mechanical Apprenticeship coupled with a “can-do” attitude.

“His attitude and commitment have been flawless,” his supervisors told us. “He is a joy to have around the workshop.”

“We have been extremely happy watching Daniel progress into a skilled tradesperson. He has shown skills across all areas of the smash repair process and continues to surprise us with his capabilities and knowledge.”

Having recently completed his mechanical apprenticeship, Daniel now intends to take on an auto electrical apprenticeship.

“Royans has been highly supportive of my will to continue my training and gain more qualifications. I would like to continue my work here at Royans and move through the ranks as time goes by.”
