"He'll do it, no problem. Well, there might be a little problem - see, he has abandonment issues. Seems he won't work for anyone who can't beat him. Something to do with his momma."
Phil Cassidy, about Hillary King.

The Driver is a Malibu Club asset mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City which protagonist Tommy Vercetti does independently, located in Vice Point, Vice City.

Mission

Tommy, Ken and Phil are all in the club, with Tommy saying that the heist plan is coming together nicely, and the only thing left to do is to hire a driver. Ken suggests himself, but Phil suggests Hilary King, describing him as a great driver. Phil calls Hilary, and asks if he can offer his services to Tommy. He says yes, but only if Tommy beats him in a race.

Tommy goes outside to Hilary, who is inside his Sabre Turbo. He explains that if Tommy loses to him, he will not work for Tommy. Tommy then gets inside a Sentinel and races against Hilary. He passes through all checkpoints scattered around Vice Beach, all while being chased by the Vice City Police Department for illegal racing. Later on, he eventually passes the finish line first, and Hilary agrees to work for him.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Win the race

Trivia

  • In the original 2002 PlayStation 2 version of the game, the song that can be heard playing in the background during the opening cutscene is "In a Big Country" by Big Country. The song isn't featured on any of the in-game radio stations. The song isn't played inside the Malibu Club during normal gameplay either. For unknown reasons, the song was removed from the cutscene in later versions of the game.
  • In later released copies of the PS2 version and all PC, Xbox and Mac OS X ports of the game, the song that can be heard playing in the background during the opening cutscene is "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. The song is also featured on the in-game radio station Wildstyle. The song isn't played inside the Malibu Club during normal gameplay.
  • The song that can be heard playing in the car during the cutscene in which Tommy meets Hilary is "All Night Long" by Mary Jane Girls. The song is also featured on the in-game radio station Fever 105.
  • Hilary's Sabre Turbo is unique. It can be obtained but it is quite difficult. The only way to obtain this unique vehicle is to destroy the car with a Rhino tank, then the remains of the car need to be pushed to a nearby garage. Although the remains tend to disappear once you approach the garage so the player needs to be careful and push it right into the garage before it disappears.
