Voor mij was het rijden bij de Gouden  Raaf een ontzettend goede en leerzame ervaring. Ik kan zelf behoorlijk
zenuwachtig worden als ik fouten maken maar tijdens de lessen stelde. Ashna mij gerust waardoor ik rustig verder kon rijden. Ik kreeg hierdoor steeds meer zelfvertrouwen en heb daardoor ook mijn examen in één keer
gehaald. Yay! De lessen waren niet alleen goed maar ook gezellig, dus zeker een aanrader! Heel erg bedankt Ashna!

How to get driving license in Netherlands? First you need to pass your theory exam and then take a drving lesson from “Autorijschool de Gouden Raaf”! Why “Autorijschool de Gouden Raaf”? The slagingspercentage is real and Ashna really teach me how to drive safely on Dutch road. I came from another big driving school and failed the exam. Not because I’m suck at driving lol but because my nerv and they don’t teach me properly. On that day when I failed, I contacted Ashna and asked him to teach me. The way to look on the road (scan), the speed on the road, how to take corner and look properly and how to give priority are very different from my ex-teacher. Now I know why I failed. Finally I passed the exam!!! I even dare to look for a car without parking camera now 🙂 Thank you very much Ashna!!!

Ik heb ontzettend fijne en leerzame lessen gehad bij de Gouden Raaf. Ik heb goed en veilig leren rijden waardoor ik nu vol zelfvertrouwen alleen de weg op kan! Een aanrader voor iedereen, bedankt!

Ik ben ontzettend blij dat ik voor rijschool De Gouden Raaf heb gekozen en in 1 keer geslaagd ben.

Ashna is een goede leraar die duidelijk kan uitleggen en er voor zorgt dat je elke les iets nieuws leert.

Ik raad iedereen aan om rijlessen te volgen bij De Gouden Raaf.


Bedankt voor je Geduld & handige Tips.
Ondanks wat moeite vanuit mij uit, is het toch uiteindelijk gelukt.
Ashna is een goede instructeur.
De Gouden Raaf is zeker een goede aanrader als je wilt leren rijden.

Succes in de toekomst.

I want to thank De Gouden Raaf and personally Ashna for his training which helped me to get my new driving license ! Thanks to his recommendations and guidance I obtained necessary skills which are needed to drive in the Netherlands with numerous bicycles around you… I recommend the school to everybody who needs a good teacher – patient, kind but still demanding, what is necessary to get good results.

With best wishes to Ashna and his school,

And good luck to all his students !


Vandaag geslaagd!

Mijn ervaring met deze rijschool.

Ashna bouwt bij elke les goed en rustig op.

Hij werkt als t ware echt met de leering naar het examen toe!

Ik vondt het altijd fijn dat ik gewoon lekker mezelf kon zijn tijdens de lessen!

Een gesprek tussen het leren door is altijd motiveerend aangezien het dan niet saai is!

Ik ben ook in 1x geslaagd en ben blij met hoe het is gegaan, hiervoor nog bedankt ashna!

Kortom, het is zeker een goede rijschool!
