A SALISBURY motorbike business has taken on its first apprentice.

Rico Squeglia will be learning about all aspects of motorcycles on site at VP Motorcycles, which is based at Sarum Business Park.

He will also be attending college once a week in order to complete his apprenticeship and gain the qualifications he needs to go on to work full time in the motorcycle industry.

The business carries out motorcycle services and MOTs, tyre changing, sales, repairs, modifications, rebuilds, and buys and sells second hand bikes.

Owner Vince Prevett said: “We are pleased to be at a stage in our business where we can offer a young keen person the opportunity carry out their apprenticeship with us.”
