Steve spent his early years training as a Mechanic and Auto Electrician whilst working at Brodsworth Colliery. Following the closure of the colliery in 1990, he went to work for Paragon Auto Recovery as a Garage Manager.  

His work included managing garage staff; conducting vehicle diagnostics and repairs (electrical and mechanical) on cars, lorries and motorcycles; controlling vehicle and maintenance schedules; designing alarms and anti-theft systems; training new drivers on road side techniques, vehicle maintenance, recovery and safety; maintenance of records for PAS 43 and ISO9002.  In 2017 Steve agreed to move to Ignition Training to pass on his vast knowledge to the next generation of mechanics.
