Each member jurisdiction nominates one examiner for outstanding performance as a driver's license examiner. Examiners are selected for their excellence in adhering to the principles and recommended practices of driver examining and for their high level of conduct in their profession.  Each jurisdiction's "Examiner of the Year" receives a certificate and a congratulatory letter from the IDEC Executive Board. One examiner is chosen from the pool as the Outstanding Examiner of the Year. 

    This year’s IDEC Outstanding Examiner of the Year Award goes to Earl Bunnell with the New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles.  Earl Bunnell has been an examiner for 32 years and has performed thousands of operator and motorcycle licensing tests. He works in a remote outpost in northern New Hampshire, within a few miles of Mt. Washington, home of the coldest recorded temperatures and highest wind gusts reported anywhere in the world. Earl has conducted exams with temperatures of 35 degrees below zero and in some of the worst weather conditions. Earl always deals with the public with respect and professionalism no matter the situation or condition.
