Here at Hotlen Driving School, we have educated over 60,000 students throughout the region of Loomis since 1989. Compared with some other driving schools in Loomis, we're also the only school in Placer County that supplies brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
Apart from teaching the proper methods of driving, our Loomis students learn the rules of the road and learn defensive techniques. Our driving school has a distinctive technique helps every single student to understand the different driving conditions they may encounter on the highway.
Our method includes 3-4 driving lessons 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 employees continues to be a major aspect in helping us build our driving school since we've opened our business. And if you favor a male or female instructor, we can easily do this too.
Sofia Hotlen, 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 significant aspect is the fact that we truly look after our Loomis students and are passionate about teaching each and every student that walks into our driving school. The majority of our students (60,000.00 +) have passed the written and driving test at the DMV.
We train Loomis each student on an individual basis. At the end of each lesson, we talk to parents what their son or daughter needs to practice to allow them to develop the self esteem to continue with the class.
We also have a "pay as you go" plan to provide parents that can't find a way to put down a one lump sum payment. Classes are spread out in a six month period each month until they are ready to take the driving test.
