Driving Schools Loomis, California

Here at Hotlen Driving School, we have taught over 60,000 students all throughout the region of Loomis since 1989. Unlike some other driving schools within Loomis, we're the only school in Placer County that presents brake and gas pedal on the passenger side.

Besides 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 method that helps each and every student to understand the different driving conditions they may face on the road.

Our method includes 3 to 4 driving sessions that are organized, well designed and very 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 major component in assisting us build our driving school since we have opened our doors. And in case you want a male or female instructor, we can do this too.

Sofia Hotlen, owner & 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 fundamental factor is that we truly look after 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. By the end of each and every lesson, we speak with parents what their son or daughter needs to practice to allow them to have the confidence to continue with the class.

Furthermore, we have a "pay as you go" plan to cater to parents that cannot afford to pay 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.
