At Hotlen Driving School, we've trained over 60,000 students all throughout the area of Auburn since 1989. As opposed to other driving schools within Auburn, we are the only school in Placer County that features brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
In addition teaching the appropriate techniques of driving, our Auburn students learn the rules of the road and learn defensive techniques. Our driving school has a unique technique helps each student to understand the different driving scenarios they might encounter on the highway.
Our approach includes 3-4 driving sessions 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 office staff continues to be a major aspect in helping us build our driving school since we have opened our business. Just in case you want a female or male instructor, we are able to make this happen too.
Sofia Hotlen, founder and owner of Hotlen Driving School has always been committed to teaching. Ms. Hotlen retains a BA from SJSU and a MS in Human Resources Compensation Management from Sacramento State University.
Another fundamental aspect 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. Almost all 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 and every lesson, we talk to parents what their son or daughter needs to practice so they can have the self esteem to continue with the class.
Furthermore, we have a "pay as you go" package to accommodate parents that cannot find a way to put down a one single payment. Classes are spread out in a six month period on a monthly basis until they're prepared to take the driving test.
