I don't know where you are but here in N.J., we have Lincoln Tech, which is a big name in this field. I saw one of their facilities when I attended the affiliated Cittone Institute for computer training and it seemed impressive. Why don't you check them out on the web? I wasn't impressed with Cittone but Lincoln is really a different entity, despite the affiliation. Worth a look.

There is an auto program at the University of Average achievers, excuse me, University of Alaska Anchorage.

And there is one down in Seward at the Alaska Vocational Technical Institute.

If you´re holder of a European Union passport there´s a car testing school in Arjeplog, North Sweden. Many European car manufacturer do their winter testing up there....

I attended the (what has now been re-named) The Art Center College of Design in L.A. (now Pasadena), and degreed from the Cleveland Institute of Art (OH) back in the 1960's. Not because I went there, but these are still two of the best schools, recognized worldwide for degreeing in industrial design with transportation design as your major. Both schools offer a diversified cirriculum nowadays, compared to the past when most of your time was spent learning if you did, in fact, have any "talent". That said, the Center For Creative Studies here in Detroit has become a top-contender, also.
There are other schools focused on auto design in Japan and Europe that are also well recognised.

There are now many other colleges offering degrees in ID and transpo design that are very well recognized internationally; I suggest you do a websearch for further info and get school catalogues sent to you. Unfortunately, they are all quite expensive, but there are also programs (mostly sponsored by the auto companies) that can help you financially without obligation. I was lucky enough to receive some support from FoMoCo, and it, of course helped...jack
