Physics has become the foundation of vocational competence of vocational high school or Sekolah Menengah Kejuruan (SMK) in technology and engineering expertise. This research aimed to get information about the relevance of physics with the automotive learning in SMK of light vehicle techniques or Teknik Kendaraan Ringan (TKR) competence. This study was a qualitative research with the subjects students grade X of TKR class at three different SMKs in Pekalongan. The data were collected by conducting library research, tests, and interviews. The data obtained were analyzed qualitatively descriptive. The results of library research analysis on the physics basic competence of SMK in curriculum 2013 with the TKR basic competence indicated a relevance among them. Physics materials that were compatible with the TKR basic competence included measurement, Newton's law, work and energy, torque, elastisits properties, static and dynamic fluids, heat and temperature, thermodynamics, dynamic electricity, laws of magnetism, and alternating current circuits, while the incompatible physics material consisted of straight and circular motion, momentum, impulse, vibrations, and waves. Students physics test in three different SMK resulted has not yet reached a classical thoroughness. At last, the interviews with the automotive teachers indicated the relevance of students 'physics values with students' abilities in the automotive vocational practice
