Right here at Hotlen Driving School, we have educated more than 60,000 students within the area of Roseville since 1989. Compared with other driving schools within Roseville, we are the only school in Placer County that provides brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
Aside from teaching the correct techniques of driving, our Roseville students understand the rules of the road and learn defensive strategies. Our driving school has a specific manner in which helps each student to understand the different driving situations they may encounter on the road.
Our method consists of 3 to 4 driving sessions that are structured, well 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 has been a big influence in assisting us build our driving school since we've opened up. If you favor a male or female instructor, we can easily make this happen too.
Sofia Hotlen, founder of Hotlen Driving School has always been dedicated 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 care for our Roseville students and are enthusiastic about teaching each student that walks into our driving school. Almost all of our students (60,000.00 +) have passed the written and driving test at the DMV.
We instruct Roseville each student on an individual basis. Following each lesson, we talk to parents what their son or daughter needs to practice so that they can have the self esteem to continue with the class.
Furthermore, we have a "pay as you go" plan to provide parents that can't afford to put down a one lump sum payment. Courses are spread out in a 6 month period on a monthly basis until they're prepared to take the driving test.
