The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has a new certification category specifically designed for technicians performing maintenance and light repair services. It’s called Auto Maintenance and Light Repair (G1) and addresses the industry need to measure the knowledge of those performing about 70% of the work being done today in repair shops across the nation.
Developed by industry experts and the certification professionals at ASE, the Auto Maintenance & Light Repair is slightly different from the regular ASE certifications. If you pass the G1 exam, and have at least one year of hands-on working experience in auto maintenance and light repair (half may be met by appropriate vocational training), you will achieve ASE certification in this area.
The G1 test contains 55 scored questions, plus 10 unscored research questions, and candidates will have 1 1/2 hours (90 minutes) to complete it. The questions, written by service industry experts familiar with all aspects of maintenance and light repair, are entirely job-related; theoretical knowledge is not covered.
Download a free copy of the Maintenance and Light Repair (G1) Study Guide on the ASE website at The Study Guide contains the Test Specifications and the Task List, to provide you with a map of the topics that will be covered on the test. More questions? Visit the ASE website to learn more.
