Lake Washington Institute of Technology's Auto Repair Shop is located on the main Kirkland campus. It does not try to compete with commercial repair shops, therefore, only work needed for student training is accepted. Vehicles less than 12 years old will meet the requirements of training for the current automotive job market.

General Repair Schedule

  • Fall and Spring quarters: basic tune-up, electrical work, transmission and air conditioning recharging
  • Winter and Summer quarters: electronics and computer controls, emissions, brakes, suspension and base engine

Since we are in the business of training students and the length of our training day is shorter than local repair shops, the work will most likely take longer to complete. Customers may supply their own parts if they meet repair course requirements; otherwise, parts may be purchased through our suppliers at list price.

Before they commit to work on the vehicle, the instructors must have specific information from the customer regarding the type of repairs needed.Please print and complete the Request to Repair Vehicle form and mail the completed form to:

If the specific instructor determines that the work will be of benefit for training purposes and support student leaning you will be contacted and arrangements may be made for an estimate of repair costs.

Approximate costs for work and parts are as follows:

Shop fee

$25.00 / hour


List price

Material fees

Will be determined

If you have additional questions, please include them on the form and the instructor or a senior student will get back to you.
