PDR Hood Repair Training

Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is the skilled practice of eliminating dents and dings from automotive sheet metal utilizing specialized tools. By obtaining access to the interior surface of the metal, precise pressure is exerted until the dent is eradicated. PDR operates from behind the vehicle’s damage, eliminating the need for sanding, painting, or body fillers. Upon completion of repairs, there should be no discernible trace of the initial dent, underscoring the importance of obtaining your PDR education from The Ding King, renowned as “The Original Paintless Dent Removal Training School.”


Each year, across the globe, powerful hailstorms strike, leaving vehicles marred with dents ranging from quarter to golf ball size on every panel. In response, insurance companies worldwide have universally acknowledged Paintless Dent Repair not merely as a “Viable Alternative” but as the unequivocal “Preferred Method” of restoration.
