Failure to Yield/Right-of-Way course work on all devices.
In the state of Wisconsin, if you commit a Failure to Yield or specific Right-of-Way violation, you may be required to take an approved Failure to Yield/Right-of-Way (FYR) course.
If you were convicted for failing to yield, but caused zero harm or some bodily harm, you must complete the course within 6 months or your license privileges can be suspended for up to five years.
If your violation resulted in great bodily harm, your license will be suspended for 3 months, and cannot be reinstated until you complete the FYR course.
If your violation resulted in death to another person, your license will be suspended for 9 months, and cannot be reinstated until you complete the FYR course.
Courses can be provided in classroom through driver training schools and technical colleges. Rapid Traffic School offers a WisDOT approved course completely online. The all-inclusive fee covers the course, exam, certificate of completion, and filing of your certificate with the Wisconsin DMV.
After a conviction for a Failure to Yield violation, you will receive a notice from the DMV, requiring you to complete an FYR course to avoid license suspension, or to have your license reinstated if already suspended. You should pay all fees owed for the violation.
Yes! Your progress will be saved automatically. We suggest you log out if you want to pause and log back in when you are ready. *You may not pause and log back in if you are taking the exam portion of the course, so it’s best to only take the exam when you have the time to finish it.
This depends on you and the pace you want to go at. The required course minimum is 2 hours, but you do not have to finish it in one sitting, and may choose to take breaks. 60 minutes are allotted for the exam, but it is only 15 multiple choice questions and will likely be quicker to finish.
Yes. You should not attempt to do the course with help from anyone else or have someone else do the course for you. The goal of the FYR course is to help you learn safer driving practices, avoid future violations, and prevent collisions. If you don’t actually take the full course and pass the exam, this cannot be achieved.
The final exam contains 15 multiple choices questions. You will be given 60 minutes to complete it, and you may review your notes as you take the test.
Per WisDOT rules, you must pass the exam with an 80% or higher, meaning you will need to get at least 12/15 questions correct. If you fail the final exam, you will be allowed to take another exam, with a different 15 questions on it. We suggest you take some extra time to review the course and your notes before taking a second test. If you fail a second time, you will be redirected to the top of the FYR course and required to complete the 2 hour minimum before taking any additional exams, at no extra charge.
Once you complete the course and receive 80% or higher on the exam, we will send one copy of your completion certificate to you, and one to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation as fast as we can, typically within 48 hours. You can request a rush order based on your license suspension date, but we cannot guarantee it will arrive on time if you wait until the last minute. It is best to give yourself plenty of time to complete the course and send in your certificate.
If you start the
course and/or the final exam, we cannot issue you a refund. You should make
sure that you are required to attend a Failure to Yield/Right-of-Way course before
enrolling. If you mistakenly purchased the course, do not take it. Contact us
via email or live chat ASAP for assistance in a possible refund.
