Right here at Hotlen Driving School, we have taught more than 60,000 students all throughout the area of Rocklin since 1989. As opposed to other driving schools in Rocklin, we are the only school in Placer County that provides brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
Besides teaching the appropriate techniques of driving, our Rocklin students learn the rules of the road and learn defensive strategies. Our driving school has a specific method that helps each and every student to comprehend the different driving scenarios they might face on the highway.
Our technique includes 3-4 driving sessions 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 has been a big factor in assisting us build our driving school since we've opened our business. If you prefer a male or female instructor, we can do that too.
Sofia Hotlen, owner of Hotlen Driving School has long been devoted 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 care for our Rocklin students and are passionate 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 personal basis. Following each lesson, we speak with parents what their youngster needs to practice so that they can have the confidence to carry on with the class.
Furthermore, we have a "pay as you go" plan to accommodate parents that can't afford to put down a one single payment. Courses are spread out in a 6 month period on a monthly basis until they are ready to take the driving test.
