Vehicle Painters prepare surfaces of vehicles, match and mix colours and apply paint. You can work as a Vehicle Painter without formal qualifications if you are able to demonstrate your technical competency to employers. However, a Certificate III in automotive refinishing technology or another relevant vehicle painting course is usually required. This course is often completed as part of an apprenticeship.
