Drivers Ed Online Classes Auburn, California

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

Besides teaching the correct techniques of driving, our Auburn students understand the rules of the road and learn defensive techniques. Our driving school has a unique method that helps every single student to grasp the different driving situations they can encounter on the highway.

Our approach is made up of 3-4 driving lessons that are structured, well 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 important influence in helping us build our driving school since we've opened up. And in case you wish a female or male instructor, we are able to make this happen too.

Sofia Hotlen, owner of Hotlen Driving School has long been dedicated to teaching. Ms. Hotlen has a BA from SJSU and a MS in Human Resources Compensation Management from Sacramento State University.

Another significant aspect is the fact that we truly care for our Auburn students and are enthusiastic about teaching each and every 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 instruct Auburn each student on an individual basis. After each lesson, we talk to parents what their youngster needs to practice so that they can have the confidence to go on with the class.

We also have a "pay as you go" program to accommodate parents that can't find a way to put down a one single payment. Classes are spread out in a six month period each month until they're prepared to take the driving test.
