Mike Riley

Director, Trainer, Assessor, MOT Tester, Maid

I have 50+ years experience in the automotive industry. That experience includes working in, but isn’t exclusive to, main dealerships and owning a garage. It extends to developing companies such as the Manchester Skills Centre and Training & Manpower. I spent around 5 years commuting between Britain & China delivering British qualifications to China’s motor companies. I was one of the first to achieve the delivery of the first IMI qualifications.

My motto;

“Im a Riley, I can do anything & never say no”


Administrator, Invigilator

I have had many years experience working in the education and support of young people, families and carers. My roles over the years have focused on coordinating busy departments and their teams. My experience of organising fast pace businesses is what prompted my career move into my current role at Prestige Training.

My motto;

“If it’s not broken – don’t touch it”

Before setting up Prestige Training back in 2012 I gained some valuable life skills working world wide. I applied those life skills  to my 20+ years experience in the  automotive industry. I have spent 13 of those simultaneously working  hands on in  companies/main dealers hips and as a trainer, training young people in employment ; as well as adults studying towards NVQ qualifications.
