Drivers Ed Online Classes Auburn, California

Only at Hotlen Driving School, we have taught more than 60,000 students all over the area of Auburn since 1989. Unlike some other driving schools within Auburn, we're the only school in Placer County that supplies brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.

In addition teaching the appropriate methods of driving, our Auburn students understand the rules of the road and learn defensive strategies. Our driving school has a specific technique helps each student to understand the different driving conditions they may face on the highway.

Our method consists of 3-4 driving sessions that are organized, 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 office staff continues to be a important aspect in helping us build our driving school since we have opened our doors. And in case you wish a female or male instructor, we can easily do this too.

Sofia Hotlen, founder and owner of Hotlen Driving School has always been committed to teaching. Ms. Hotlen holds 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 Auburn students and are passionate about teaching each 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 teach Auburn each student on an individual basis. By the end of each and every lesson, we discuss with parents what their son or daughter needs to practice so that they can have the self esteem to continue with the class.

We also have a "pay as you go" plan to cater to parents that can't manage to place down a one one time payment. Courses are spread out in a six month period each month until they're able to take the driving test.
