Here at Hotlen Driving School, we've educated over 60,000 students throughout the region of Rocklin since 1989. Compared with some other driving schools in Rocklin, we are the only school in Placer County that features brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
In addition teaching the proper techniques of driving, our Rocklin students understand the rules of the road and learn defensive strategies. Our driving school has a unique technique helps each student to grasp the different driving conditions they might encounter on the highway.
Our technique consists of 3 to 4 driving sessions that are organized, smartly 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 staff members has also been a huge influence in assisting us build our driving school since we have opened up. And in case you wish a female or male instructor, we can easily do that too.
Sofia Hotlen, owner of Hotlen Driving School has long 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 the fact that we truly care for our Rocklin students and are enthusiastic 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 Rocklin each student on an individual basis. Following each lesson, we speak with 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" plan to accommodate parents that cannot find a way to place down a one lump sum payment. Classes are spread out in a six month period each month until they are prepared to take the driving test.
