The Salt Lake City Police Department on Friday began its annual motor school at the Utah State Fairpark for officers interested in assignment to the motorcycle squad.

The two-week school makes certain each candidate can operate a motorcycle under the different scenarios routinely encountered by motor officers, according to a press release.

Riders must prove their skill by successfully navigating a variety of obstacle courses, as well as pass a braking exam.
