Driving Schools Loomis, California

At Hotlen Driving School, we have taught over 60,000 students all through the area of Loomis since 1989. As opposed to some other driving schools in Loomis, we're the only school in Placer County that supplies brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.

In addition teaching the correct methods of driving, our Loomis students understand the rules of the road and learn defensive techniques. Our driving school has a unique technique helps each student to grasp the different driving scenarios they may face on the highway.

Our technique includes 3-4 driving lessons that are structured, smartly 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 staff has also been a important factor in assisting us build our driving school since we have opened our business. If you want a male or female instructor, we are able to do that too.

Sofia Hotlen, owner & founder 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 fundamental aspect is that we truly care for our Loomis 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 Loomis each student on an individual basis. At the end of each and every lesson, we speak with parents what their son or daughter needs to practice so they can have the self esteem to carry on with the class.

Furthermore, we have a "pay as you go" program to provide parents that cannot afford to put down a one single payment. Courses are spread out in a six month period on a monthly basis until they're ready to take the driving test.
