REPAIRING cars comes naturally to 20-year-old automotive apprentice Jack Jennings.

"It runs through his veins," said his supervisor and owner of South Coffs Motors Ram Gounder.

Jack has been doing his theory work through the Motor Traders' Association, which is an alternative path to TAFE and involves onsite-training.

The former Woolgoolga High School student motored through his modules, completing three years worth of theory in 18 months.

"I just got in there and did it," he said.

"My dad has a motor vehicle repair and trade background so I grew up tinkering with cars and developed an interest when I was quite young."

Ram said Jack has a great work ethic and impressive background knowledge.

"He was willing to listen and willing to learn and showed initiative."

Jack is on track to complete his apprenticeship at the end of next year.
