Trooper Daryl Pechin (Troop G) lent his services to show DL examiners the proper way to travel through the driver license motorcycle course at the Wilson Blvd. Driver License Office in Jacksonville.

Further, the DL examiners learned how to conduct a safety check on the motorcycles as well as put the motorcycle operators through the course they must complete prior to obtaining a motorcycle endorsement on their Florida Driver license. By working together, our agency continues to make our state a “Safer Florida!”
