My favorite quote / quote / life motto πŸ’­


My hero / idol / role model, and why? 😎


Best song for on the road 🎧

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 to become a driving instructor? πŸ˜ƒ

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 why a student has ever failed? 😭


What makes Caland Driving School the best? πŸ…ΏοΈ

My colleagues at the counter. That always makes it extra fun to come and have a cup of coffee in between.

What do I do in a traffic jam? πŸ’­

I just make sure I don't get stuck in traffic ;)

How do I drink my coffee? β˜•οΈ

With milk and sugar.
