Welcome to the Hot Rod Institute

The PREMIER Hot Rod and Restoration School.


Hot Rod Institute has a lot of new things we are working on over the next several years. Classes are going great and students are building great careers and are in high demand. We are working on getting our accreditation to be able to offer federal funding, it’s a long process but we are working hard to make come to be. We are working on the yellow ribbon program for our veterans, even if it has to be our own version; we are going to make it happen for them. The first three starts of 2018 is a great time to get started in your training at Hot Rod Institute while the classes are still very small. The fall classes are the traditional start time and are always a bit larger. Anyways please let us know how we can help you with your future career, give us a call or request info from our web site; today.
