Right here at Hotlen Driving School, we have trained more than 60,000 students in the region of Rocklin since 1989. As opposed to some other driving schools in Rocklin, we are the only school in Placer County that supplies brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
Besides teaching the correct techniques of driving, our Rocklin students understand the rules of the road and learn defensive strategies. Our driving school has a unique method that helps every single student to grasp the different driving conditions they might face on the highway.
Our technique consists of 3-4 driving lessons that are structured, smartly 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 staff members continues to be a huge factor in helping us build our driving school since we have opened our business. Just in case you want a male or female instructor, we can easily do this too.
Sofia Hotlen, founder 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 important factor is the fact that we truly look after our Rocklin students and are passionate 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 Rocklin each student on an individual basis. Following each lesson, we discuss with parents what their son or daughter needs to practice so that they can develop the confidence to carry on with the class.
We also have a "pay as you go" program to provide parents that cannot manage to pay a one lump sum payment. Classes are spread out in a 6 month period each month until they are prepared to take the driving test.
