Here at Hotlen Driving School, we've trained more than 60,000 students in the area of Auburn since 1989. Unlike some other driving schools in Auburn, we're the only school in Placer County that features brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
Besides teaching the appropriate techniques of driving, our Auburn students learn the rules of the road and learn defensive strategies. Our driving school has a specific method that helps every single student to understand the different driving scenarios they can face on the highway.
Our technique includes 3 to 4 driving sessions that are structured, well designed and quite 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 continues to be a big component in assisting us build our driving school since we've opened our doors. And if you wish a male or female instructor, we can do that too.
Sofia Hotlen, founder and owner of Hotlen Driving School has long been dedicated 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 that we truly look after our Auburn students and are enthusiastic about teaching every student that walks into our driving school. The vast majority of our students (60,000.00 +) have passed the written and driving test at the DMV.
We instruct Auburn each student on an individual basis. After each lesson, we discuss with parents what their son or daughter needs to practice to allow them to develop the self esteem to carry on with the class.
We also have a "pay as you go" plan to cater to parents that cannot manage to put down a one one time payment. Courses are spread out in a 6 month period on a monthly basis until they are ready to take the driving test.
