Here at Hotlen Driving School, we have trained over 60,000 students all through the region of Loomis since 1989. Compared with some other driving schools in Loomis, we're the only school in Placer County that provides brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.

Apart from teaching the appropriate techniques of driving, our Loomis students learn the rules of the road and learn defensive techniques. Our driving school has a specific manner in which helps each student to grasp the different driving scenarios they may face on the highway.

Our technique consists of 3-4 driving sessions that are organized, smartly 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 continues to be a important factor in helping us build our driving school since we have opened our business. And in case you want a male or female instructor, we can easily do that too.

Sofia Hotlen, founder of Hotlen Driving School has always 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 Loomis students and are passionate about teaching every single student that walks into our driving school. Nearly all of our students (60,000.00 +) have passed the written and driving test at the DMV.

We train Loomis each student on an personal basis. By the end of each and every lesson, we discuss with parents what their youngster needs to practice so they can develop the self esteem to continue with the class.

We also have a "pay as you go" plan to accommodate parents that cannot afford to pay a one one time payment. Classes are spread out in a six month period each month until they're ready to take the driving test.
