Is it possible to use "až" in place of "když"?

No, at least not here. It is hard to find good use for "až" in the past. Those I can think of are translations of "until", not "when".

Why is "odjíždět" used here and not "odjet"? As far as I understand the English sentence it describes a one-time situation and nothing habitual.
