My favorite quote/quote/life motto 💭
My hero(s) / Idol / Great role model, and why 😎
Best song on the go 🎧
I have FunX turned on as standard in the car, and my students usually like that too. I don’t even hear the music anymore…
Favorite route/road in Amsterdam and why? ❌❌❌
Usually the route from the Driving School along the Sloterpark, then I can drink my coffee [emoji coffee] quietly along that long straight road hahaha (zero speed bumps).
My motivation for becoming a driving instructor? 😃
My family members Zafer and Irem, the founders of Driving School Caland, motivated me to take the training. And then it turned out to suit me. So I literally fell into it.
The best feedback a student ever gave me? ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I once had a student who had lessons elsewhere and was wasting an unnecessary amount of time on unnecessary actions; she was only busy switching/connecting, it seemed, so she couldn’t do anything else. Then I taught her that it can be done much easier, and since then a world has opened up for her. She was surprised how intuitive this was. And that she also had time for this in a driving lesson. That has always stayed with me. That she could do so much more than just switch gears during an entire lesson.
The craziest reason a student ever failed? 😭
What makes Driving School Caland the most fun? 🅿️
My colleagues at the counter. That always makes it extra fun to come and have a cup of coffee in between.
What I do in the traffic jam? 💭
I just make sure I don’t get stuck in traffic ;)
How I drink my coffee? ☕️
With milk and sugar.
