Right here at Hotlen Driving School, we've educated over 60,000 students throughout the region of Roseville since 1989. As opposed to some other driving schools within Roseville, we're the only school in Placer County that features brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
In addition teaching the appropriate methods of driving, our Roseville students understand the rules of the road and learn defensive strategies. Our driving school has a unique manner in which helps each and every student to grasp the different driving situations they may face on the road.
Our technique includes 3-4 driving lessons that are structured, well designed and very thorough. See "teen driving" for explanation of lessons.
For the past 20 years, we have operated our driving school on High Street. We are just on block away from Placer High School. We provide ample parking in the back of the building for allparents.
Our friendly workers has also been a important component in assisting us build our driving school since we have opened up. Just in case you want a male or female instructor, we can do this too.
Sofia Hotlen, founder and owner of Hotlen Driving School has always been committed to teaching. Ms. Hotlen has a BA from SJSU and a MS in Human Resources Compensation Management from Sacramento State University.
Another significant aspect is the fact that we truly care for our Roseville students and are passionate about teaching every single 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 train Roseville each student on an individual basis. At the end of each lesson, we discuss with parents what their youngster needs to practice so that they can have the self esteem to carry on with the class.
Furthermore, we have a "pay as you go" plan to cater to parents that can't afford to put down a one one time payment. Courses are spread out in a 6 month period on a monthly basis until they are able to take the driving test.
