Is it possible to become a mechanic and work in a shop without drivers license?

Is it still possible to become a car mechanic and work in a shop with having a drivers license? Just curious, don't think I'm trolling. Because it is one thing to have the license to be a car mechanic, but its another thing to have the license to drive.

    It might be--but if you have to test drive a car for any reason, you'll be unable to. No one would allow you to drive someone else's car without a valid license.

    No and if you're that dumb you can't figure out you need to drive the cars to diagnose them and put them on a lift to work on them I doubt you have the brains to repair cars!

    Not if you ever need to test drive to diagnose problems.

    If all you do is change oil or do jobs that do not require any driving then you can.

    Mechanics have to test drive vehicles to diagnose problems and to make sure problems are fixed. The also need to drive cars in and out of the shop. Due to insurance requirements, you'd need to be a licensed driver. I would imagine it would be nearly impossible to get hired as a mechanic without a driver's license.

    You have to drive the vehicles into the garage and take them out.  You have to test drive the vehicle sometimes after the repair.  You have to drive the vehicle and confirm what the customer is saying or as part of troubleshooting.  Nobody will hire you if you cannot do those things.

    No one would hire you.  Mechanics have to test drive vehicles they work on.

    Yes it is. Unusual but doable and mechanics often don't have to drive the vehicles. The question an employer will ask is why don't you have a license? A medical issue? A legal issue? A laziness issue? An incompetence issue? Any of those could be grounds for not employing you.
