Welcome to the Hot Rod Institute

The PREMIER Hot Rod and Restoration School.


  2/1/2018 school update:  Hot Rod Institute is planning a tuition increase starting October 1, 2018. We have not had a tuition increase for the last 5 years. The increase is not a large one and if you are already enrolled at the lower rate the increase will not apply. The deadline for the lower rate is March 1st 2018, any enrolments for the Fall 2018 class after the deadline will be at the new higher rate. The Spring and Summer classes are still at the lower rate and there is great opportunities to start your new career at the lower cost and smaller classes. One of Hot Rod Institute strengths is the small class size, great learning environment with a lot more one on one with the instructors. If you have any questions or would like to enroll to take advantage of the current enrollment rate please contact the Admissions department and they will happy to help. If you have been waiting for the best time to attend it’s NOW, start 2018 by getting into the career of your dreams! Thank you for your interest in Hot Rod Institute, we look forward to working with you soon.
