Besides teaching the proper techniques of driving, our Roseville students understand the rules of the road and learn defensive techniques. Our driving school has a special manner in which helps each student to grasp the different driving scenarios they might encounter on the road.
Our technique includes 3-4 driving lessons that are structured, well designed and quite thorough. See "teen driving" for explanation of lessons.

Sofia Hotlen, owner of Hotlen Driving School has always been dedicated to teaching. Ms. Hotlen holds a BA from SJSU and a MS in Human Resources Compensation Management from Sacramento State University.
Another important factor is the fact that we truly care for our Roseville students and are passionate about teaching each and every student that walks into our driving school. Almost all of our students (60,000.00 +) have passed the written and driving test at the DMV.
We instruct Roseville each student on an individual basis. Following each and every lesson, we talk to parents what their youngster needs to practice to allow them to develop the confidence to carry on with the class.
Furthermore, we have a "pay as you go" plan to provide parents that can't manage to pay a one lump sum payment. Classes are spread out in a six month period on a monthly basis until they're able to take the driving test.
