The Automotive Service Excellence or ASE had a mission to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service in the United States through the testing and certification of automotive repair technicians. The ASE A3 Practice Test covers manual drive train, which is a series of components that transfer power from the engine to the wheels. Manual drive trains are controlled directly by the driver through the use of a clutch and gearshift.
