Besides teaching the correct techniques of driving, our Roseville students learn the rules of the road and learn defensive techniques. Our driving school has a distinctive manner in which helps each and every student to understand the different driving scenarios they can face on the road.
Our method is made up of 3 to 4 driving sessions that are organized, smartly 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.

Sofia Hotlen, owner & founder of Hotlen Driving School has always been devoted to teaching. Ms. Hotlen has a BA from SJSU and a MS in Human Resources Compensation Management from Sacramento State University.
Another important factor is that we truly look after our Roseville students and are enthusiastic about teaching each student that walks into our driving school. Nearly 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. By the end of each lesson, we speak with parents what their son or daughter needs to practice to allow them to have the confidence to continue with the class.
We also have a "pay as you go" plan to provide parents that cannot find a way to place down a one lump sum payment. Courses are spread out in a six month period on a monthly basis until they are able to take the driving test.
