    A DPDT (double pole, double throw) switch is simply 2 SPDT (single pole, double throw) switches in the same housing and operated by the same lever. Wire one motor to one SPDT switch and the other to the other SPDT switch. Then when you operate the lever, both motors will be controlled. Be sure to use the same polarity on each motor.
