At Hotlen Driving School, we've taught more than 60,000 students throughout the region of Auburn since 1989. Compared with other driving schools within Auburn, we're the only school in Placer County that provides brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
Apart from teaching the proper methods of driving, our Auburn students understand the rules of the road and learn defensive techniques. Our driving school has a unique method that helps each and every student to understand the different driving scenarios they may encounter on the highway.
Our method includes 3 to 4 driving lessons that are organized, smartly designed and extremely 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 staff members has also been a huge factor in assisting us build our driving school since we've opened our business. If you wish a female or male instructor, we can make this happen too.
Sofia Hotlen, owner of Hotlen Driving School has long been committed to teaching. Ms. Hotlen retains a BA from SJSU and a MS in Human Resources Compensation Management from Sacramento State University.
Another significant point is the fact that we truly look after our Auburn students and are passionate about teaching every single student that walks into our driving school. Most of our students (60,000.00 +) have passed the written and driving test at the DMV.
We train Auburn each student on an personal basis. At the end of each lesson, we talk to parents what their son or daughter needs to practice so that they can develop the confidence to go on with the class.
We also have a "pay as you go" plan to cater to parents that cannot manage to pay a one one time payment. Courses are spread out in a six month period each month until they are able to take the driving test.
