Here at Hotlen Driving School, we've trained over 60,000 students throughout the region of Loomis since 1989. As opposed to other driving schools within Loomis, we're the only school in Placer County that supplies brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
In addition teaching the proper techniques of driving, our Loomis students learn the rules of the road and learn defensive techniques. Our driving school has a distinctive manner in which helps each and every student to understand the different driving situations they may face on the road.
Our method consists of 3 to 4 driving lessons that are organized, well 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 employees continues to be a big factor in helping us build our driving school since we've opened our doors. Just in case you prefer a male or female instructor, we can easily 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 important factor is that we truly look after our Loomis students and are passionate about teaching each 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 teach Loomis each student on an individual basis. After each and every lesson, we talk to parents what their youngster needs to practice so they can develop the self esteem to continue with the class.
Furthermore, we have a "pay as you go" package to provide parents that can't afford to pay a one single payment. Courses are spread out in a 6 month period on a monthly basis until they're able to take the driving test.
