Our team of specialists:

Rob, male, 65 years:

Rob is maybe the most known instructor in The Netherlands on the topic of Fear of Driving. As an expert he has been interviewed by multiple media and with his amount of years of experience, you are not going to surprise him.

“My dissatisfaction with the approach to driving anxiety in the years 2006 and 2007 started my search for a meaningful and result-yielding approach to the anxiety problem. Victim Support courses gave me insight and analysis options. However, it was not clear to me what I could do. That put me on the trail of hypnosis and nlp (Neurolinguistic programming). These are the tools I use to deal with fears.

I do not have a fixed plan of action, but respond to what I observe in the client. I also occasionally work with Drs. Monique Overdijk of the Almere Psychologists Practice to gain a better insight into, in particular, where trauma plays a role.”


Rob is also certified as a Hypnotherapeut, educated at Hypnose Instituut Nederland


Saida, female, 39 years:

it is not often that you see female instructors. Saida is an exception. Some reviews that speaks for itself:

I was very lucky that my friend recommended me Saida’s class! From the very first moment I felt comfortable, even I came to my first lesson stressed. She made me believe that I really can drive! Saida gives you as much freedom as you need during the class, allowing you to make small mistakes but learn from them. At the same time she is always ready to support and take over when it is really needed. Another great point that she gives you feedback after every class, so you constantly can grow!
I am so happy to have my classes with Saida.

I really enjoyed Saida’s driving classes.
I liked the fact that there was always a plan on how to improve my driving skills and the fact that after each lesson we had a discussion about how the driving session went and what we should work on improving next.
She helped me as well in overcoming my fear of driving.
I really recommend Saida!

Elisabeta Lotrean

Such a good school, especially their instructor Saeeda who specializes in fear management in new drivers. She helped in boosting my confidence and actually start to enjoy driving. She was observant of my mistakes and had a very nice way to make me practice more. I would recommend Saeeda to anyone who might have fear of driving or trying it for the first time.

I had an excellent experience taking driving lessons with Saida. […] I was particularly nervous about driving on the highway. Saida really took time to understand what I needed and built up my confidence. It was really great to be instructed by her and she went out of her way to help me overcome my fears. I would highly recommend Saida as a driving instructor.
