Here at Hotlen Driving School, we've educated more than 60,000 students all over the area of Loomis since 1989. As opposed to some other driving schools within Loomis, we're the only school in Placer County that supplies brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.
Apart from teaching the correct techniques of driving, our Loomis students learn the rules of the road and learn defensive strategies. Our driving school has a special manner in which helps each and every student to understand the different driving conditions they might encounter on the highway.
Our approach includes 3-4 driving sessions 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 office staff continues to be a major aspect in helping us build our driving school since we have opened our business. And in case you wish a male or female instructor, we are able to do this too.
Sofia Hotlen, owner of Hotlen Driving School has long 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 look after our Loomis students and are enthusiastic about teaching each and every student that walks into our driving school. The vast majority 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. After each and every lesson, we talk to parents what their youngster needs to practice so they can develop the confidence to go on with the class.
We also have a "pay as you go" package to accommodate parents that cannot find a way to put down a one lump sum payment. Courses are spread out in a six month period on a monthly basis until they are prepared to take the driving test.
