Diagnosing A Vehicle After an Accident
Every car is designed to be able to handle front- and back-end collision damage thanks to “crumple zones” which can prevent more serious damage. If you’re in a front-end accident, the hood of the vehicle may incur the most damage. They’re meant to buckle to prevent windshield damage and damage around the passenger area, too.
ATC students will also handle rear damage to a vehicle. Bumpers are meant to withstand collisions and act as crash energy absorbers, to prevent damage to the trunk, fuel tank, and exhaust system. Working with our experienced instructors both in the classroom and in the lab, you’ll learn what happens in a car accident and what needs to be done to restore a vehicle to its previous state.
