Marsha Gierman, a certified examiner with the Department of Driver Services in Covington on Geiger Street, observes Covington resident Steven Mares as he rides past during the first part of a three-part test for a motorcycle license. In the background, Loganville resident Mike Davis, who was there with his son, Chris, attempts the course. Gierman said the test covers three areas - basic control skills, a riding curve test and an obstacle avoidance test.
