  •  2019 IDEC Outstanding Examiner of the Year Award 


    John Mathieu, Driver License Examiner I, Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles

    John Mathieu Headshot

    IDEC Outstanding Examiner of the Year Award Winner John Mathieu has been a driver license examiner with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles for 10 years and during that time he has been an exemplary examiner. His spirit of teamwork has earned him the respect of all his co-workers. In addition to serving as a driver license examiner, Mathieu volunteers with the Document Validation Unit Project. This project was created to allow examiners from field offices to assist the unit with approximately 8,000 lawful presence cases monthly which need additional verification prior to issuance. Mathieu has shared his knowledge from an examiner’s perspective and the unit staff have been able to better comprehend the issuance process from the field offices. For this volunteer work, Mathieu travels from Miami to Tallahassee every week and in addition he works half days on Saturdays, all without complaint and with full commitment and a positive attitude.

    Mathieu has long been considered a lead examiner in his office and he has trained and mentored many of the new and seasoned members in his office. He takes his job responsibilities very seriously and goes above and beyond to ensure that his customers are served efficiently and promptly If a customer issue arises, he takes the time to explain and makes sure the customer’s needs are met. Mathieu also displays a high level of initiative, effort, and commitment toward completing any assignment he is given. In both his job and his volunteer work, he is a team player and always represents his department professionally. When the department asked for volunteers for Hurricane Maria relief he gladly assisted the Florida Licensing on Wheels units. Mathieu is a dedicated employee who adheres to the principles and recommended practices of a driver license examiner.

  • 2014 Outstanding IDEC Examiner of the Year

    2014 Winner - Rene Divine - IDEC Outstanding Examiner
    Renee Devine (awarded posthumously)

    Renee Devine, who passed away after a hard-fought battle with cancer in June 2014, was known for her kind and friendly demeanor. She also had a rock-solid sense of teamwork and commitment to safety that made a lasting impact on colleagues. Devine was an 18-year veteran of the Iowa Department of transportation. She is posthumously awarded the International Driver Examiner Certification (IDEC) Outstanding Examiner of the Year. Devine, who garnered resounding praise from her co-workers, was a role model for them. Her accomplishments on the job were many, including collaborating to create an audio version of Iowa’s driver’s manual for people with reading disabilities, a recording still used routinely. Her deep knowledge of policy and procedures fueled her ability to train new employees at the Ames driver’s license station, where she worked for 15 years, as well as many county employees when they began issuing driver’s licenses. Devine had a particular gift for helping both young and older drivers who needed remedial driver improvement interviews to understand their less-than-safe behaviors.
