driver education obstacle course

Powered by the Teen Driver Blueprint learning platform, the Parent Care Program from Arcade Drivers School has been designed to ensure that your new driver receives the most complete driver education available on the market today!
The program consists of two online courses developed in association with Mike Pehl, a 30 year veteran crash investigator and driving educator, to address the top danger zones causing novice driver collisions as determined by the Centers for Disease Control (cdc.gov). These danger zones include:

  • Driver Inexperience
  • Distracted Driving
  • Speeding
  • Drowsy Driving
  • Driving with Other Teen Passengers
  • Impaired Driving
  • Driving at Night
  • Seat Belts and Airbags


teen driver blueprint

The first course, Coaching from the Passenger Seat will walk you through the proper steps in supervising your new driver from the first discussion all the way to licensing day and beyond. Mike's engaging manner and straight forward instruction make it easy for you and your teen to enjoy this course and the process.

The second course, Danger Zone training is the first course of it's kind to be introduced AFTER the teen receives their license. In many cases new drivers will "forget" valuable lessons after the first few months of driving on their own. In this course your teen will receive a new lesson, every two weeks, the first reminding them of the danger zones for collisions of new drivers and the second a short dash cam video lesson to keep them engaged and aware.

This program will definitely help you, their primary driving coach, prepare them for a lifetime of safe, responsible and confident driving before and after they receive their license!

Failure To Yield Course

Wisconsin law provides the "rules of the road" for proper highway etiquette.



It's The Law

As of August 1, 2012, any person who receives a citation and is convicted for failure to yield under Wisconsin statute 346.18, will be required to attend a failure to yield right-of-way course. This course can also be completed online!

Read below for information on conditions of suspension and how we can help!

failure to yield right of way

Operating Privileges

If the violation results in bodily harm, great bodily harm or death to another, the operating privilege will be suspended:

  • violation results in bodily harm = 2 month suspension
  • violation results in great bodily harm = 3 month suspension
  • violation results in death to another person = 9 month suspension

Reinstatement of Privileges

If your operating privilege is suspended, you will not be eligible to reinstate those privileges until you have successfully completed the failure to yield right-of-way course. This course has been designed to reacquaint you with vehicle right-of-way rules and provide awareness of keeping motorcyclists, pedestrians and bicyclists safe.

Arcade Drivers School offers the required 2-hour course at an affordable price. After you have successfully completed the failure to yield right-of-way course:

Frequently Asked Questions

If your question is not listed, please call us at (414) 328-1212



Teens:

If you are at least 15 years old, you can simply call our office during normal office hours, or you can enroll online.

To enroll online, simply view our class schedules and locate the session number (left of class date) of the class that you wish to enroll in. Then complete the online registration form, or call our registration number (414) 328-1212, to enroll by phone. It's that easy.

Adults:

Simply phone our office during normal office hours to schedule an appointment, or complete the online registration form on the schedules page.
You must be at least 15 and 1/2 years old to get your TIP and at least 16 years old to get your drivers License.
Your son/daughter will need to take the MV3001 form provided by Arcade Drivers School. In addition to that your son/daughter will also need to take a certified copy of their birth certificate or a valid US passport. In addition to that your son/daughter will also need to take their Social Security card or valid photo student ID card from their High School.
No matter how old your child is (under 18) when they get their instruction permit, they must drive with that instruction permit for 6 months.
They must be 15 and 1/2 years old, AND have taken or are taking the classroom portion , AND have their instruction permit. Then they can schedule their behind the wheel lessons. The first lesson must be scheduled within the first 60 days of your child receiving their instruction permit.
All you have to do is call our main office where you are taking the behind the wheel lessons and let them know you have to cancel and reschedule. This must be done at least 24 hours in advance or you will be charged a "no show" fee.

Your son or daughter has been given all the instruction on scheduling their behind the wheel lessons. We believe that driving a car is a huge responsibility, so start by having your son or daughter schedule their own lessons.
Your son or daughter will take on a average a lesson every 7 to 14 days. This allows the student to practice what they were taught with a parent. If you schedule a lesson every 7 to 14 days you will be completed in about 3 months. A student must complete all six lessons prior to taking their road test. Remember, they must have their instruction permit for 6 months.
Your son or daughter can complete the state requirements with our drivers education program. The requirements of 6 hours of Behind the Wheel Training and 6 Hours of observation, can be completed once a student provides a completion certificate showing that the entire classroom has been completed. Once that is provided to our school, you can receive the form so that the student can take their permit test at the DMV, or they can come to our main office and take the test and than go down to the DMV to receive the temporary permit once passing the test. (A 50.00 Deposit is required to receive and take the Permit test).
All completion certificates are filed electronically through the Department of Transportation in about 7 to 10 business days of completing the final behind the wheel, and the student has completed all the other requirements of the state required course.
At the Department of Transportation it will cost you $35.00 for the Temporary Permit.
Unfortunately anyone under the age of 18 years of age must be enrolled and attending a Driver’s Education Program in order to receive a temporary permit.
