Ten Years as a Driving Instructor: Experience That Matters


When you spend a decade of your life in a particular profession, you can rightfully call yourself an experienced professional. As a driving instructor with ten years of experience, I've had the privilege of guiding countless individuals on their journey to obtaining a driver's license. This journey has brought me in contact with a diverse group of students, from teenagers with little to no driving experience to globetrotters who do not yet hold a Dutch driver's license and must thus undergo a tailored, abbreviated training program."


Interacting with my students from all around the world has given me a unique perspective on the similarities and differences in driver education worldwide. It's astonishing how many similarities exist in the pursuit of road safety, but the biggest difference lies in how a drive in the Netherlands is assessed and considered safe. Here, safety is paramount, and a safe examination drive is an absolute requirement to obtain a Dutch driver's license.


Experience is invaluable in this profession because it enables you to effectively communicate with people of all ages and backgrounds. One of the most commonly heard phrases in my lessons is, "You're not just learning how to drive a car, but more importantly, how to safely participate in traffic." This wisdom is deeply ingrained in my teaching and guidance.


My years of experience also allow me to develop customized lesson plans, ensuring that you don't overspend on your driver training while still receiving top-quality instruction. Everyone is unique, and my goal is to create a personalized journey that aligns with your specific needs and goals.


In summary, ten years as a driving instructor has taught me not only how to drive a car but, more importantly, how to help others safely and confidently navigate the roads. My passion for this profession has only grown stronger, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with those who wish to hit the road.
