Clearfield police officer Ryan Wong leads his fellow candidates through a slalom exercise during a motor school training session at the Utah State Fairpark, Friday, Aug. 29, 2014. The two-week school trains officers interested in working on a motorcycle squad.

The Salt Lake City Police Department is holding its annual motor school for officers interested in assignment to the motorcycle squad. The purpose of the two-week school is to make certain that each candidate is able to operate a motorcycle under different scenarios routinely encountered by motor officers. Riders must prove their skill by successfully navigating a variety of obstacle courses, as well as pass a braking exam.
